Latinx History at Duke University


This section gives you a general introduction to the photographic and audio-visual materials we have. While there are not specific collections related to AAPI history, it will give you directions on how to search these materials.

The bulk of the photographs available at the Duke University Archives are housed in three collections:

These collections may be requested and reviewed in our reading room, where scanning equipment is available for your use at no charge. Additional fee-based reproduction services are also offered.

Many of the photographs from these collections have been digitized and made available online as part of our Flickr photostream.

  • These may be downloaded directly from Flickr for private research, study, and teaching (with credit given to the "Duke University Archives").
  • Please contact us to request permission for other uses of these materials, such as in commercial products or for broadcast or publication.

The Duke University Archives also holds several collections of Duke Athletics-related photographs. Please see our Duke Athletics Research Guide for additional information about these collections.

Audio Recordings and Film / Video

The University Archives collections listed below are our main sources for audio, film, and video recordings produced by university- and student-run media organizations.

These recordings document:

  • major campus events, including public lectures and performances and university commencement ceremonies
  • selected sports events
  • press conferences and interviews with campus administrators and faculty
  • promotional pieces

Use copies of these recordings may have to be prepared before they may be viewed or listened to; please contact the Duke University Archives staff to inquire about using these recordings.

To locate additional audio and video recordings—including oral history interviews and audio or film recordings of sports events—try searching the Duke University Libraries' catalog with the subject heading "Sound Recordings" or "Video Recordings."
