Support the Libraries
Help Move Duke University Libraries Forward
Over the past decade, the Libraries have undergone a physical and technological transformation, preserving the best of our tradition and history while introducing new spaces and resources for the Duke community. In the process, we've become one of the most popular destinations on campus. Across our libraries, students and faculty from multiple disciplines gather to exchange ideas, explore our collections, participate in cultural events and experiment with innovative tools that enrich teaching and learning.
Support for the Libraries through the Duke Forward campaign will help us advance the University's highest academic priorities. New contributions will allow us to introduce new tools to support scholarly work, expand our collections in strategic ways and digitize more of our unique resources. Duke has built one of the top research library systems in the country. As our prominence and reputation continue to grow, the whole University will benefit.
As part of the University's $3.25-billion capital campaign, Duke Forward, Duke University Libraries wants to raise money to support five important initiatives:
- Building distinguished collections
- Providing technology for faster, easier and better research
- Hosting programs that educate and engage
- Supporting experts and innovators
- Creating and augmenting spaces for study and community
We are proud of the role we play in the life of Duke University, and we grateful for your continued support.
