Some books that the Duke University Libraries have access to are held at the Library Service Center (LSC), which is an off site storage location. Books requested from the LSC will be sent to the library you indicate as your preferred delivery location in your Document Delivery/ILL settings. To change your delivery location you will need to login to your account. Under the “Tools” menu select “Change User Information.”

Rubenstein Library Requests
Some materials held by the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library are located in the Library Service Center. These materials must be requested through the Rubenstein Library online request system. Select the box or volume you wish to request. If you want to request multiple items, you must request each one individually. They will be retrieved from the Library Service Center and delivered to the Rubenstein Library for use at that location.
University Archives Requests
Materials in the University Archives that are located in the Library Service Center are requested by the same process as for Rubenstein Library items.
If you do not have a NetID or Duke Library card, please use the Guest Request Form. You may not check out materials, but you may use them at the LSC or in one of the campus libraries.
