Duke and UNC have a long-standing agreement to share resources, and have divided responsibility for building research collections between the two campuses.  Duke has focused on Japan, Korea and South Asia, while UNC has collected extensively on China and Southeast Asia.  More recently, Duke has expanded its Chinese collections, focusing on popular culture and the contemporary social sciences.  The two libraries purchase materials for patrons on the other campus, share a catalog,, and provide mutual borrowing privileges and rapid delivery for materials between campuses.
