Duke’s comprehensive $3.25 billion campaign, “Duke Forward: Partnering for the Future,” will support strategic priorities across the university, with a goal of raising $45 million for the Duke University Libraries.
It isn’t often that librarians find out what happens to the people we help. But once in a while we receive encouraging reports from the field.
