Service Plan During COVID-19: Students: Library Services During COVID-19

COVID-19 Impact on Library Services for Students

To protect the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and our community from the spread of COVID-19 the university made the decision to move all spring 2021 classes to remote status. The James B. Duke Memorial Library is committed to continuing our support of research and the academic endeavors of our campus community. With the pandemic and current public health concerns our goal is to maximize the electronic accessibility of our resources.
