The Libraries Assembly (LA) is an organization for all library staff within Duke University Libraries (DUL).

It is the mission of the Libraries Assembly to:

  • Promote excellence in library and information professions and participation in these professions at large
  • Advocate for and promote the interests of library staff within the libraries and in university affairs
  • Foster a collegial environment among the staff of the various libraries
  • Make recommendations to the administrations of the libraries concerning matters of interest to the membership
  • Welcome and mentor new members

Membership within the Libraries Assembly is open to all interested library staff within DUL, including staff in the professional library schools, part-time staff, and term appointment employees. The LA can offer you connections with co-workers, information about Duke and the libraries, advocacy partnerships, and continued professional development.
