The Gumberg Library is a hub for academic exploration, distinctive intellectual resources, information literacy instruction, and expert library services for the Duquesne University community.
The five-story structure boasts individual and cooperative study areas, private and group study rooms, a FlexTech classroom with seven collaborative work spaces, a rare book reading and seminar room, assistive technology equipment and tables, and color printing.
Several unique special collections that are recognized locally, regionally, nationally and internationally are part of Gumberg Library including The Maureen P. Sullivan Curriculum Center, The Simon Silverman Phenomenology Center, and collections found within the Special Collections and Archives.
Our vision is to elevate student and faculty success and enhance the reputation of Duquesne University.
Your donation will be used by Gumberg Library to help:
- #PowerGumberg! Your donation will help us install new cord-free phone charging stations throughout the library.
- Fund our student scholarship. The Gumberg Library Endowed Student Scholarship Fund was founded in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions of the library’s student employees, to help students who are working their way through college, and to demonstrate the importance of the University’s mission. The scholarship is awarded annually in April to coincide with National Library Week.
