Dean's Update: Connecting to Scholarship

ScholarSip ConversationOne of the Libraries’ key strategic directions is to build connections, especially between members of Drexel’s community and scholarship. As summarized in our 2012 - 2017 Strategic Directions, the Libraries’ staff strives to strengthen these important links. In this issue of In Circulation, you will find details about a few new initiatives underway to support this objective.

The Libraries’ staff brings a wealth of expertise and experience to assist students in their exploration of ideas, as well as seasoned researchers in their creation of new knowledge and with the organization of data and publishing results. To introduce these librarians, archivists, information professionals and service staff, the Libraries has launched new biography pages. and I invite you to visit them to learn more about our staff. You can also check out this year's staff celebration recipients who exemplify the Libraries' staff collaboration, innovation and dedicated service improvements.

An illustration of one of the many ways librarians help connect young researchers to information essential for making effective decisions is detailed in this issue. Contrasting use of information through a case study involving a bakery, Drexel's business students experience the impact of utilizing information literacy skills over a real community that did not.

Also happening this month is ScholarSip, our informal social venue to encourage building relationships among faculty and professional staff across campus colleges, schools and departments. This event raises awareness of research and cross-disciplinary explorations. The inaugural ScholarSip illustrated the enthusiasm for such an opportunity and encouraged the Libraries to continue to offer one each quarter.

This continues to be a busy time, but as we approach the end of the academic year, the staff also enjoys congratulating our graduates and applauding colleagues around campus for preparing them for life beyond Drexel—including helping them learn skills for addressing challenges of the information age!
