178.3 Scholar Studies in the James B. Duke Library


A. Background

Faculty members may need space, other than a departmental office, for study, writing, or research.


B. Policy

Scholar studies are available on the lower level of the James B. Duke Library for use by faculty members.


C. Guidelines

1. Written application for use of a scholar study will be made to the chair of the Library Committee according to established guidelines. The application will describe the work in progress, estimate the time needed to complete the work, and state in which semester(s) the study will be needed.

2. Assignments of studies are made by the Library Committee in October and in May.

3. Studies are assigned for one semester or for a full year (October to September). Studies are renewable only if supply exceeds demand. Faculty who are not reapplying for a study must remove personal items from the study by the last Friday of the assigned period.

4. All library materials in the study must be checked out from the Circulation Desk.

5. While the faculty and staff of the James B. Duke Library take every reasonable precaution to make sure that studies are secure, the library personnel cannot assume responsibility for the security of personal items that might be lost or stolen from a study. Faculty are advised not to leave valuable or confidential items in the studies.
