As the institutional memory of Drexel, the Archives collects, preserves and makes accessible the records of the University. You'll sometimes find us here in Hagerty Library, but just as often we're in MacAlister or Curtis or Main, listening to faculty and staff tell us about what they do and the records they create. After one such meeting, a professor eloquently expressed the following sentiments:
"I have been wondering how I could preserve these bits of my office's history for... posterity. I had not thought of the Archives. Now, that's taken care of.
The current exhibition Many Littles Make a Much: A Selection of Miniature Books from Drexel University's Special Collection has been on display for a couple of weeks now, and has received a fair share of admiration.
A reception for the show is planned for July 22. Watch this space for more details.
In addition to the physical exhibition, an online version is now available.
