Our librarians and skilled staff provide invaluable services to the Duke community.  

These are the men and women who work together to meet the teaching and research needs of the entire Duke community, day in and day out.  They're accomplished specialists versed not only in their particular academic fields, but also in how to find, organize, preserve, and share the wealth of materials available in today's information-driven society.  Philanthropic investments during the Duke Forward campaign have allowed us to attract and support innovative librarians, technologists, and archivists.
