Exciting News from the Library's Health Sciences blog!
The Libraries have subscribed to Elsevier’s ClinicalKey online service, which replaces the electronic content that was formerly offered through MDConsult. It offers a more robust (yet simple) searching interface and access to thousands more books and journals, as well as other sources, as noted in the following list.
We are starting to explore ways to make our website more efficient and helpful for everyone who uses it...including you! So, we need your help. Please take a moment to complete a short survey about our website. The survey will be available until December 17th.
It's almost impossible to complete a research assignment without using the Libraries' website.
Drexel University Libraries Expands Access to Harvard Business Review Articles to Include Course Use
Drexel faculty may now assign Harvard Business Review [HBR] articles in courses, including placing articles on reserve, posting them to course management shells, and adding them in course packs, as the result of a new licensing agreement acquired by the Libraries.
The Libraries’ special license will extend course use to HBR articles on behalf of Drexel faculty university-wide. Previously, the Libraries provided researchers access to the HBR, but the publisher restricted use of articles for courses.
The Libraries is excited to announce the addition of two new archives to the Libraries' collection:
- The Vogue Archive - A complete searchable archive of American Vogue, from the first issue in 1892 to the current month, reproduced in high-resolution color page images. Every page, advertisement, cover and fold-out has been included, with rich indexing enabling you to find images by garment type, designer and brand names.

If you have used E-Z Borrow in the past, you will now notice that it has a new and improved interface. Some key advantages of the new interface include more streamlined (and faster) searching, advanced search features, better and condensed search results, and improved search retrieval time. All participating libraries are searched at once, rather than being divided into search groups as they were previously. The search results are more relevant and you now have the option of sorting by relevance, title, or publication date.
When you need to learn how to do something, do you ever search YouTube? Why not do the same when it comes to library research?
