Statement of Purpose

The role of the Duke University Library Advisory Board is one of advice and advocacy — assisting the University Librarian by pointing out:

  • significant opportunities
  • recommending approaches to new challenges
  • suggesting ways to raise the Libraries' profile among the university's constituencies

The Board also provides leadership for fundraising by helping to identify and secure financial resources and committing personal support.  Finally, the Board brings together the interests and expertise of a wide variety of Duke's supporters dedicated to the success of our Libraries.


The Library Advisory Board meets on the campus of Duke University twice yearly.
