Our Duke Libraries are among the most robust sources for Jewish Studies collections. Here, you will find rich and diverse collections representing different disciplines and a vast array of interests. Resources include current publications, films and videos, to rare and unique manuscripts and archival collections.
Managing the collection and helping others navigate through the materials is Rachel Ariel, librarian for Jewish Studies in the International and Area Studies Department of Duke University Libraries. As a subject specialist for Judaica and Hebraica, Rachel selects all types of materials for the library: print, electronic and visual. She collects materials from and about Israel, as well as from many other parts of the world, in Hebrew and in other languages. A member of the Association of Jewish Libraries, Rachel serves as a liaison to the Center for Jewish Studies and provides specialized reference assistance, research consultations and instruction to library users.
