Summer Divinity Library Services

Summer Hours: Monday – Thursday, 9am-4pm (Library Staff works remotely on Fridays)

Building Access: Duke University will remain closed in the summer of 2021 to alumni, visitors, and affiliates. Faculty and staff have building access with their Duke IDs based on their use of the SymMon app. Student access to academic buildings has been deactivated until campus re-opens for the Fall 2021 semester. Only students in Duke’s summer surveillance testing pool will have access to the Divinity building. Students in the surveillance testing pool do not need to make a reservation to visit the Divinity Library — just sign in at the front desk when you arrive.

Library Take-out: You may request books by selecting the green Request button in the online library catalog. You will be notified by email when your book is available. If you select the Divinity Library as your pickup location, you may come to campus any time the library is open (Mon-Thurs, 9am-4pm) for your books. When you arrive, call our front desk (919-660-3450) and let us know which entrance you’re at. (We recommend Telcom Circle!) Library staff will meet you with your books. You do not need to make a reservation to use Divinity Library Take-out.

Scanning Requests: You can initiate a scanning request by selecting the green Request button in the online library catalog, then selecting “Scanning Request.” This will take you to the Document Delivery New Request form, where you can fill in the chapter title(s) and/or pages you would like scanned. You will get an email notification when your scan is ready for you.
