Dean's Update: January 2012

Danuta A. NiteckiDanuta A. Nitecki

With the start of a new year, we feel refreshed to think about the future.  In this segment, I want to offer a preface to what will be reported in coming months. There are two particularly exciting tasks ahead.

By end of the calendar year we hope to complete the renovation of the W.W. Hagerty Library.   Mechanical upgrades, replaced carpets, and reupholstered furniture were completed over the past couple of years with special focus on refreshing the second floor and starting on the entry floor.   The remainder of the first and the ground floors still await renovation.  To inform space design to address new demands for library spaces, we will conduct a series of discussions with a group of faculty, students and staff over coming weeks about desirable features for learning environments and programs to support them.

Another challenging area of planning we have begun to address with colleagues across campus is how to support the growing need to manage new information formats and digital collections produced through Drexel research and teaching.   A grass roots group, Digital@Drexel has helped to uncover various collections ranging from digitized text to 3D videos, and to identify the different points in the life cycle of their digital information where assistance with managing information production, organization, retrieval, and presentation would be welcomed.  As part of the Libraries’ strategic planning, we will offer directions to develop a support service, expecting it to be provided in collaboration with other experts on campus.

New beginnings seldom come without building on the past.  Through In Circulation, our monthly eNewsletter, we hope to keep you informed of not just Libraries achievements, but also developments we are undertaking.

Happy New Year,

Danuta A. Nitecki

Dean of Libraries
Professor, School of Information Science and Technology
