Library Usage During COVID19


Library study rooms, cubicles, and open spaces are available Monday – Thursday, 8am – 10pm, Friday, 8am-5pm, and Saturday – Sunday, 10am-10pm. Reservations are still required for group study spaces and cubicles. Once reserved, you will only need to check-in at your space and not at the Lobby Desk. Any open tables, soft seating, PIN stations, and computers are all available for use without reservation. 


More staff are now on-site and excited to see you in person! Our Service Desk (Level 2R) is open Monday–Friday, 8am-5pm. You may still contact Library staff through our chat function between 9am and 5pm, Monday through Friday. Library staff are available to meet with faculty, staff, and students by phone, email, and WebEx or Zoom. Library classes are all held online.

Library Logistics

The Medical Center Library is located in the Mudd building (between the hospital & TSCHE):




  • ePrint is a Duke printing service.
  • Names and IDs for all currently enrolled School of Medicine students have been added to our system.
  • The ePrint station is located next to the Service Desk. Students can independently access it without monitoring from Library staff.
  • Additional ePrint stations are available throughout campus, including the Trent Semans Center.
  • A quick video on how to print efficiently and faster while reducing toner and paper use can be found here.

Study Carrels

Numerous study carrels are available on level 2R & level 3 for individual or group study, some are reservable.

Room Reservations

Study rooms may be reserved by faculty, staff, and students for 2 hour blocks per individual or group. Rooms may be scheduled for up to 1 week in advance (including the day of the reservation). After a 15-minute grace period for arrival, the space becomes available to others.
