Welcome to our new MBA and MMS students and welcome back to our returning second year MBA’s. Students bring an energy and vitality to our university and to our city. We hope your move went smoothly and that as you explore the city and the university, you come to enjoy your new home as much as we do.
Duke Libraries are among the elite libraries of the world. Since you have found your way to the Ford Library Blog, you must already know that the library web pages give you access to the library 24 hours every day. You can access the online catalog for all of Duke’s libraries as well as the libraries of other research universities in the area, including UNC and NC State (noted in the catalog as TRLN Libraries).
Besides print resources, the Duke catalog gives you access to the thousands of full-text journals, eBooks, and audiobooks (online or on CD) that you can download to your own devices. We also offer business e-book collections on Kindles as well as a variety of career tools.
I also invite you to come in person to our library, the most beautiful space on campus (“like reading in a forest” – an actual quote from an MBA), and a quiet place to study. Introduce yourself to Jane Day, our fabulous director of reference services. Or consult with any of our reference librarians in person at the reference desk, by email or by online chat.
We can help you be successful during your time here at the Fuqua School.
