Few parts of Duke have been transformed so completely in recent years as its libraries.  

During the Duke Forward campaign, we completed two major renovations and expansions that have greatly enhanced the research support and gathering space we provide for today's students and scholars.  Thanks to careful planning, the experience of every library user who walks through our doors has been enhanced by these state-of-the-art facilities that are designed with both form and function in mind. 

The Crown Jewel of West Campus: The David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library
