ICS Capstone Seminar: Why Use the Library?

Not everything is free

Access fee-based databases with thousands of magazines and scholarly journals in full text. Check-out how to locate and browse databases by subject.


Not everything is authoritative

Librarians and faculty have pre-selected scholarly materials (including e-books, e-journals, newspapers, and data) specifically for college-level courses and research topics.

Not everything is transparent

Get personal assistance from Duke University Library subject specialists, including librarians from the International and Area Studies department and consultants from the Center for Data and Visualization Sciences. Or, for immediate assistance, contact us via chat.


Not everything is on the web

You don't have to be in the library to use it

Use the online catalog to identify and access e-resources from off-campus.
