We work closely with faculty, students, staff, campus partners, and our Duke community to advance research, academic success, equity, and critical thinking. Using learner-centered pedagogy, we integrate the Libraries’ and University’s initiatives and strategic goals into our teaching and learning. Our services are open to all.

Learn more about Teaching & Learning’s values and mission.

The Libraries provide many types of teaching and learning options:

We work with undergraduate and graduate faculty to offer course-specific research practice sessions and workshops. Instruction is tailored to the specific needs of the course. To arrange for a session, please contact AskLib.

The Rubenstein Library offers instruction in the use of archival primary sources. If you would like students to get hands-on experience with rare books, manuscripts, photographs, and other media in our collections, please consult the Rubenstein Library's instruction webpage.

We offer a wide variety of workshops to provide resources and opportunities to learn about and develop research skills. Please see the upcoming workshops led by the Center for Data and Visualization Sciences, and the ScholarWorks Center for Scholarly Publishing, We welcome requests for future workshops!

We partner with Writing 101 instructors to offer course-integrated sessions to introduce students to library resources and services, provide an introduction to assignment-specific research strategies, and practice activities designed to develop students’ critical thinking skills.

We offer department-specific orientations and tours for undergraduate and graduate students. If you would like to schedule an orientation or tour, please contact the subject liaison for your department.

We are full-time instructors in several Duke undergraduate courses. If you or your department would like to discuss how to incorporate our involvement in your curriculum, please contact Linda Daniel, Teaching & Learning Strategist.

We work one-on-one with faculty, students, and staff to make better use of the Duke University Libraries and their resources when conducting course-related or original research. To make an appointment with your liaison librarian, please fill out our consultation request form.

We work with the Graduate School and to provide trainings for Duke Ph.D. and master's students in accordance with the guidelines for the responsible conduct of research. Please see the list of upcoming RCR workshops provided by the Duke Libraries.
