Other Librarian Specialists

The Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture staff are super human resources for materials like zines in their collection housed in the Rubenstein Library on the third floor of Perkins.

International & Area Studies librarians have expertise in different regions of the world. Please don't hesitate to contact one of them for resources on specific countries if you're not finding what you need.



Welcome to the library guide for Girls On Film with Dr. Kimberly Lamm.  This guide is designed to provide resources and tips for conducting library research for your assignments. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your course librarian, Danette Pachtner.

Places to find materials


Locate books, films, recordings, journals, and more using the Books & Media search.  Start with a keyword search, and narrow results using the column on the left.

Search TRLN to find and request books from our consortial partners, UNC-Chapel Hill, NCCU, and NC State.  Delivery to campus is usually within 2 business days.

Can't wait?  You can use your Duke Card to check books out anytime if you make the trip yourself to partner TRLN libraries!

Try WorldCat to search most North American libraries simultaneously; borrow what Duke doesn't own or subscribe to using Interlibrary Requests.  


Research 101

Click through short tutorials  that give an overview of libraries & accounts, finding books, finding articles, citing sources, advanced search, evaluating sources and then take the Research 101 library review and see how you do.

The Evaluating Sources section includes discussion of Scholarly vs. Popular.
