East Campus - Music Library

Duke's Music Library is on the first floor of the Biddle Building on East Campus

Check out our Libraries Hours page for up-to-date schedules for all the Duke Libraries.

Use the Books & Media search. For print books, look at the library location (ex: Perkins & Bostock) and write down or take a photo of the Library of Congress call number (ex: PR6039.O32 L63713 2006). You'll use this call number to locate the book at whichever library is listed on the page. All of our libraries have call number maps posted that you can use to see which floor and section your book will be located in. Ask at the front desk if you're having trouble finding a book. We are happy to help!

For ebooks, use your netid/password to access. 

The Lilly and Music Libraries have large collections of DVDs and CDs for check-out. We also have chargers, DVD drives, 3D scanners, and other loanable technology. Ask at the service desks.

Don't worry, we can get books and articles for you through our Interlibrary Requests department. Just create an account and request the items that you need. You will be notified by email when your book arrives for pick-up; you can receive articles as PDFs directly to your email account. There is no charge for this service.

Yes! Learn more at our Find Library Spaces page. 

Check out our citing sources page to get started. We also support a number of citation management tools which can be very helpful in creating in-text citations, footnotes, and works cited pages. Librarians are also here to help. Ask us citation questions in-person or via email or chat.

There are eprint stations and reservable scanners in Lilly and the Perkins and Bostock Libraries as well as other locations throughout campus. 3D printing is available in the CoLab in Lilly.
