Thomson ONE “Retirement”

January 21st, 2022

The Thomson ONE database from Refinitiv (formerly Thomson-Reuters) will be permanently retired and go offline in early February. Projected retirement is January 31, but there may be a brief continuation for a few days in February.

Thomson ONE will be replaced by Refinitiv Workspace which will deliver much of the same content that is available in Thomson ONE. Until Refinitiv Workspace is available, users may use the following products as effective substitutes for data in Thomson ONE.

If the above databases don’t contain the data you formerly found in Thomson ONE, please contact our reference librarians and we’ll connect you with other alternatives.

Weather-Proof Library Resources

January 19th, 2022

If Duke University declares that the Severe Weather Policy is in effect, Ford Library may need to close our library facility in Breeden Hall at the Fuqua School.

Regardless of the weather, our reference librarians and other staff can still support your research needs remotely (Mon.-Fri. 8am – 4:30pm) — assuming we have power in our homes!

The closure of our facility won’t affect your access to our online research databases, e-journals, or e-books. Those should remain accessible 24/7/365 barring technical issues at the provider sites. The links below will give you quick access to those resources.

If a faculty member lists a particular print resource for a course, there may be e-book or online audiobook versions available if you cannot access print while the Library is closed. The list below includes the online versions of some of those resources designated for Spring Term 1.

We encourage you to stay safe and sheltered, and please let us know if we can help with your research!

Diverse Faculty / Diverse Scholarship

December 2nd, 2021

This final Director’s Blog of 2021 highlights the research of some of our Fuqua faculty to illustrate the academic strength that a diverse community can create and share to the benefit of management education and the world. Our only regret is that we can’t feature our entire faculty here due to space limitations!

Note that the links below will prompt you for your Duke Net ID and password in some cases. Fuqua faculty author names will appear in bold. Thanks for your attention this year, and best wishes for successful exams and a restful holiday season!

PDF Download Issues At Journal Sites

November 17th, 2021

Two of our online journal publishers (Wiley, Taylor & Francis) have outsourced their DDoS protection to a 3rd party service (Cloudflare) and this is causing users who attempt to download PDFs of articles from these journals after following proxied links from a library web site to see an error message like the one below.

If you are on Duke’s campus, you can use the links below to access articles in journals from these publishers. If you are off-campus, please enable a Library Resources or Fuqua School of Business VPN session before following the links below to the publisher web sites.

Support tickets have been opened with the publishers and they are working to resolve the issue.

Please feel free to email us if you need assistance retrieving an article due to this issue.

E-Journal System Maintenance

September 24th, 2021

From 7AM to 11PM on Saturday, September 25, a system used by Duke Libraries to provide access to online journals will be unavailable.

Links to journals via the Online Journals Title Search tool, and many (but not all) links from Ford Library’s Select Business E-Journals page will be unavailable while our system vendor performs necessary maintenance.

Need Online Journal Access During the Maintenance Window?

Online journal access via publisher web sites, and via article search databases will be unaffected by this maintenance. You may search these sites and databases directly for journal articles by using the links below:

Article Databases*

*The “GetIt@Duke” button within the databases above is part of the system undergoing maintenance and those buttons will not function properly during the maintenance window. If article full-text (as HTML or PDF) is not directly available within the databases, you may need to search for access via the publisher site.

Thanks for your patience while our vendor-partner performs this necessary maintenance.

From the WSJAll of the linked articles below require a WSJ.com account which you can create hereFord Library and Goodson Law Library have co-funded your access to personal accounts on WSJ.com.

  • West Virginia Creates Jobs Farming Lavender at Former Coal Mines – Jocelyn Sheppard, 61, who has degrees in English and library science, is president of Appalachian Botanical, a company banking on the hope that repurposing former mines as lavender farms can help diversify the state’s economy, create jobs and clean up the environment.
  • Goldman Sachs, Other Financial Firms Back Program to Diversify Wall Street – Bloomberg LP, Centerbridge Partners LP and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. are funding a new program to train, mentor and hire students for careers in the financial sector in a push to bring more women and minorities to the industry.
  • Facebook Disables Access for NYU Research Into Political-Ad TargetingThe Library Director comments: If you’re doing data-driven research and need to build a research or article corpus, don’t do it this way. The NYU Ad Observatory, launched last September by the university’s engineering school, recruited more than 6,500 volunteers to use a special browser extension to collect data about the political ads Facebook shows them. Soon after, Facebook, which hadn’t given permission for the project, demanded the researchers cease collecting the data.

Featured Fuqua Faculty Research

Director’s Blog – August 2021

August 10th, 2021

This month’s Director’s blog shares Tips for Tech Success in Ford Library. When new students come to Fuqua, mastering basic technology tasks such as connecting to Fuqua networks, printing in the Library, and others can be a little overwhelming! We hope these tips will help.

Tech success starts with synchronizing Your Duke Net ID password.

  • Use your laptop or our stacks computer and browse to https://oit.duke.edu/selfservice, and login with your Duke Net ID (e.g. jdoe123) and password.
  • At the right of the Self Service home page, in the NET ID section, click on “+ Change your password”.
  • Enter your current password, and then create a new password that meets these guidelines in the appropriate boxes, and click “Submit”.

Why do I have to do this? – Your brand new Duke Net ID password allows you to login to computers on the Duke WIN network domain, but not computers on the FUQUA domain. Once you create and submit the new password, it will be “synced” across all Duke network domains in about 5 minutes, allowing you to login to any public computer at Fuqua.
