Interested in researching women and labor movements? Come visit Duke's Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscripts Library!

Before You Arrive

Most of our collections are stored at our off-site repository, called the Library Service Center, so you will need to register as a researcher and request the materials you want to use at least 2 full business days before you visit the Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. We will retrieve your materials and hold them in the Rubenstein Library Reading Room.
