Gather with friends and learn about a few of the ways that Duke is active with and supportive of its LGBTQ student and alumni community:
- Bernadette Brown, the new director of Duke’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, will be introduced.
- Laura Micham, Merle Hoffman Director of the Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture and the Curator of Gender and Sexuality History Collections for the Rubenstein Library, will provide a brief look at the Rubenstein’s notable LGBTQ history and culture collections. Many of these collections were used in the Libraries’ recent exhibit, “Queering Duke History.”
- Kristen Brown Smalley of the Office of Gift Planning will share more about Duke’s activities in the LGBTQ community and our growing affinity network across the country.

Week 5 feels like it’s been a big one. The stacks are filling up with manuscript boxes and books and feel less cavernous and more cozy. By the numbers it’s been a big week too. On Tuesday we hit an important milestone: 10,000 manuscript boxes landed in their new homes in the stacks. It’s been a good week for our books too. We’ve moved, Library of Congress-ified, and shelved nearly all 4,000 of our folios and all 20,000 duodecimos; octavos and quartos are next on our list. Some new formats started moving this week as well: 100 drawers worth of oversize flat files moved and about half or our papyrus collection made the journey too.
We also want to invite everyone to our open house on September 10th! You’ll have a chance to tour the new spaces and exhibits, meet and mingle with library staff, and learnhow the Rubenstein Library can support your research. Check out the details here.
