The libraries of Duke University consist of the William R. Perkins Library and its six branches on campus: Biological and Enviromental Sciences, Chemistry, Lilly, Vesic (Engineering, Math, and Physics), Music, Special Collections; the Pearse Memorial Library at the Duke Marine Laboratory in Beaufort; and the independently administred libraries of Divinity, Law, Medicine, and Business (Ford Library). Included are extensive research collections from and about South Asia, Latin America, Africa, Europe, Russia, Poland, as well as the country’s largest collection of Canadiana. The Music Library (which includes the Music Media Center) supports the music curriculum and advanced research. Its collection consists of over 110,000 items in diverse formats (books, music scores, journals, recordings, microfilm, and other media items). The Vesic Library’s collections support Duke’s teaching and research interests in the fields of biomedical engineering, civil engineering, computer enginering, electrical engineering, enviromental engineering, materials science, mechanical engineering, mathematics, and physics. The Special Collections Library houses rare printed materials and manuscripts and archival collections documenting the American South; literature; sales, advertising, and marketing history; religion; women’s history; African American history; history of economic thought; and numerous other topics. Its international holdings, particulalrly with regard to British and American activities in Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and Austriala, are also extensive. While the collections are developed in relation to instructional and research interest at Duke, the library encourages their use by visiting scholars and the general public as well as Duke faculty and students.
