Interlibrary Loans for SON PhD Students

We realize that the Duke libraries may not have all the journals that we need to support your learning at Duke. The Library has been granted funding to provide a limited number of interlibrary loans to School of Nursing PhD students. 

There is an initial budget cap funding for articles and once reached, the School of Nursing and the Library will re-evaluate the program.  So your requests should be:

  • thoughtful
  • directly relevant to your educational program
  • articles you consider Important or Crucial to your learning, research or patient care

The number and type of articles will also be analyzed and shared with the School of Nursing on a regular basis to determine appropriateness of requests as well as costs.

Students should NOT be requesting on behalf of faculty, staff, housestaff, or other Duke students. Those individuals must make their own requests and pay the standard fees if not covered by their program.

Students who need to make bulk requests should contact the Library first.

When you make an interlibrary loan article or chapter request, you will need to select "SON PhD" from the dropdown on the form in answer to the question, “Are you willing to pay a fee ($11) if the item is not available at Duke?”
