E-Journal System Maintenance

Thursday, June 16th, 2022

Updated for June 2022 : From 9PM on Friday, June 17 until 9PM on Saturday, June 18, 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:

Journal Publishers

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.

Thomson ONE “Retirement”

Friday, 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

Wednesday, 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!

  • 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.
