The Link is an expansive and flexible campus facility offering innovative spatial and technological approaches to teaching and learning. Located on the lower level of Perkins Library, The Link is open for use when the library is open. The Service Desk is staffed during regular business hours (see "Walk-In at the Link").
The Link project represents an important opportunity for evaluation and assessment to guide decisions that lie ahead in renovating existing space and developing entirely new learning spaces at Duke. The original vision of the Link dictates that it should be not only an excellent teaching space but also a place for experimentation and a source of best practices for overall academic space planning. Therefore, significant attention has been paid to gathering data about the use of the space and the overall implementation of the project’s vision. The result of this data analysis is now available as a publicly available assessment document in the Link Assessment section of our web site.
