Food for Fines Event

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

Donations will accepted from Friday, November 15 – Sunday, December 15.

Drop donations at any of the Duke Libraries, except Law.

Fine waives will be offered for donations of food items, hygiene items, and select paper products. 1 item donated =$1 in fines waived.

Food Drive Most Needed Items:

  • Canned fruits and veggies
  • Canned meat

Using Library Resources During Summer Break

Wednesday, May 8th, 2019

mba on the beachCongratulations on finishing the final Term of the year! This post will fill our rising Second Years in on what Library resources, both print and online, will be available to you during summer break.

Using Library Databases During An Internship

The key point to consider when using library databases is to avoid the transfer of entire reports, articles, or data content from academically licensed databases to your summer employer. Transferring database content to a summer employer breaches our license with the vendor; and could cost the breaching user, and all of Fuqua, their access to the database.

Using databases to prepare for your internship without the transfer of content may be permissible. Please review the use cases described on our web site; and email us if you have any questions.

Carlton Brown, Associate Director & IT Services Manager

Print, Audiobook, and E-Reader Use During the Summer

Leaving North Carolina for all or most of the summer? Don’t forget to return library items before you leave town.

Why? If the book you borrowed is recalled for use by another patron, you’ll need to ship it back to Ford Library. If you aren’t able to ship it back, you should know that recall fines are $3/day.

If you are borrowing a Kindle, you do get a guaranteed 4 week loan, but they can’t be renewed after that. Audiobooks are just 2 week loans.

Thank you for returning library materials before you leave!

Amy Brennan – Collection Services Librarian
