Have an end of term writing project due? Come to a late night tutoring session with a Drexel Writing Center peer reader.
Late Night Tutoring offers extended hours of the Drexel Writing Center for students to receive assistance on end of term writing assignments or any other pieces of writing they would like to work on.
Peer tutors will be available in the main entrance of the Hagerty Library from 6pm-10pm on Tuesday, December 4, and Wednesday, December 5. Go to drexel.mywconline.com and select the Late Night Tutoring schedule to reserv
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.
If we are required to purchase a textbook, the library should have a copy of it too. There is no Engineering Economic Analysis, 11th edition, but CIVE240 requires it.
Thanks for writing. I know that textbooks are an enormous expense for students, and many rely on the library’s course reserves system to help them through the term. Books and other materials go on course reserve when your instructor or department requests it. If we don’t hear from your instructors, we don’t put their stuff on reserve.
The Macs should have Photoshop on them; there’s no point in having them otherwise.
Thanks for your suggestion. Hagerty's computers are equipped with the same software that is available to the university at large, and Drexel does not have a site license for Photoshop. However, software is constantly reviewed for all public systems, so your request has been noted. Meanwhile, if you need to use Photoshop, there are computers in Korman that have it installed.
Please also send out circulation notices for DVDs when they are due on a particular day, the same way circulation notices are sent out for books.
Thanks for the suggestion. Circulation notices are emailed 5 days before borrowed items are due. Since the loan period for DVDs is 5 days, if we sent the notice for DVDs, you'd get it on the day you checked the DVD out. Unfortunately we can not create an alternate system for DVDs with our current software. To help you remember, we insert a helpful reminder about when your DVD is due in each DVD case we check out.
Requests have been coming in to restore the microwave in the café. Here are the two latest:
I’m wondering if making entry/exit through the bookmark cafe possible, allowing students to bring outside food into the cafe (via the cafe door) and having a manned circulation window in the bookmark cafe (as part of the main circulation desk where students can check out laptops, reserve materials, etc) would alleviate all the problems and complaints about [the food policy].
Thanks for your interesting idea.
