Research in an Academic Library

Duke University Libraries have a lot to offer (7,478,410 books, 1,083 databases, and much more).

We want you to feel at home!

Diversify Your Internet Search

Compare search results from different search engines:

Note that the Duke University Libraries ALL search works like a search engine for materials we have bought for Duke faculty, students, staff, and guests. You may find reference to these materials on the Internet; make it a habit to come to the library website when you find materials (books, articles, films, etc.) that cost money: if we do not yet own this material, we may be able to buy it, or we will advise you to use Interlibrary Loan to request the material from another library at no cost to you.
