The Preservation Department and Conservation Services Departments serve Duke University Libraries and the wider academic community by extending the life of its collections and overseeing the treatment and preventative care that ensures the long-term usefulness of the University's library resources.
We provide essential preservation and conservation services throughout the Duke University Libraries, especially to those staff who build, maintain, and work with the collections in the Perkins Library System. We consult, train, and advise Duke University's professional school libraries on preservation issues. We also provide information to the university and regional scholars on proper care and handling of books, manuscripts, and selected non-print material.
