Welcome to the Duke University Libraries! Here you will find not only a rich array of resources assembled expressly to support the academic programs and the learning, teaching and research of the Duke community, but also talented, knowledgeable people to assist you with the use of these collections -- along with inspiring, comfortable spaces in which to read, write, reflect, create, and collaborate.
We seek to anticipate the needs of our library users, and to provide convenient access to a broad range of digital information without losing sight of our most basic commitment to the preservation of scholarship in print form. We look forward to meeting you virtually and/or in person, and welcome your questions, suggestions, and recommendations.
Rita DiGiallonardo Holloway University Librarian & Vice Provost for Library Affairs
