Crazy Smart The Edge

Here’s a bright idea.

What if you take a bunch of people doing interesting research from across campus, put them in an environment where they can interact and inspire each other, throw in some cool technology for them to experiment with, and see what happens?

Do something cutting-edge. Support Duke University Libraries, and make a gift today.
