Duke Library

Duke Library

The James B. Duke Memorial Library was built in 1967 in memory of James Buchanan Duke and has served the university for roughly 30 years.

In 1998, the library completed a $7 million yearlong modernization and reconstruction to allow the building to serve as an information hub in a digital age.

The library features the Inga Hong Gallery, a permanent display that ranges from paintings and lithographs to calligraphy, ceramics and bone china, as well as a variety of Korean handcrafts.

The library also houses the Inez Moore Parker Archives and Research Center, a number of computers and classroom space featuring modern equipment for data/projection and collaboration.
