The five-story structure holds an extensive collection which serves the Duquesne community on campus and at a distance, offering access to a collection that includes both print and electronic resources. The Library’s collection has grown to more than 700,000 volumes. The Library makes available more than 190 research databases that index newspapers, research journals, and other publications. It provides access to more than 12,000 electronic journals, newspapers, and other periodicals as well as electronic versions of books, reference works, poems, plays and more. The Library catalog provides links to many electronic resources and to catalogs of other regional libraries. Students have several options for obtaining materials not available at Gumberg Library including E-ZBorrow and ILLiad. The Library is committed to using evolving technology to deliver the information that students need in the most cost-effective manner. The Library participates in local, regional, and state consortia which support reciprocal borrowing. It also maintains agreements with regional academic libraries and hospitals that allow students to borrow books onsite at participating institutions. Professional librarians are available for on-site and remote consultation and assistance. In addition, the Library designed a course to assist students in developing the research and information literacy skills needed to succeed at Duquesne University. The course focuses on basic skills needed by every student regardless of major, and examines selected ethical issues surrounding computing and using information. The Library offers computers in the reference area, electronic classroom, and Assistive Technology Center for research needs. The Assistive Technology Center has computers equipped for the visually impaired, blind, hearing impaired, learning disabled, and students with limited English. Wireless access is available throughout the Library. Students can connect their personal laptops or loaner laptops anywhere in the Library.
