Do I need a library card to use the Ford Library?

Any current Duke student, faculty or staff member can use their Duke ID card to check out materials from Ford Library. Current students, staff, and faculty from NC State, UNC-CH, and NCCU may use their official university ID cards to check out materials. 1st time borrowers from these schools should visit the Library during business hours so that their information can be entered into the Library Circulation System.  Fuqua alumni can access library items for up to 1 year after graduation free of charge. This must be added manually so Fuqua alums must visit the library during business hours for their accounts to be updated to Fuqua alumni status. After 1 year post graduation there may be fees involved in continued borrowing. Ask for details at the Ford Library Circulation Desk.
