Tables should be reserved for parties of 2 or more. 10 of the tables by the reserve desk have 1 person each! Meanwhile, most of the single person desks go empty. Groups have nowhere to work!
Thanks for your suggestion. At this time we are unable to reserve public tables for group study. However, group study rooms accommodating 2 to 12 people are available at no charge to all Drexel students.
Please try not to let people reserve rooms as a means of booking a free motel room... It limits the availability of rooms at this limited library.
Study rooms are available for use by groups of students requiring conversation for group project work or studying. Because this type of work is frequently necessary for completing assignments, cooperation is needed to extend the use of the rooms to as many students as possible. If you feel a group of students is using a room inappropriately, please report the matter to the Reserve Desk.
I would love for the library to invest some money in some new scanners! They are the same ones from when I was an undergrad and I graduated in 2003! Thanks! Also, better scanner software. P.S. The lid on the current scanner is broken!
Thank you for your suggestion. We are indeed planning to upgrade our scanners by the beginning of the next school year. Stay tuned for more details.
Why don’t you make the copier machines payable with credit card?
Thanks for your suggestion. We are charged a service charge on credit cards that does not make this feasible, unless you are copying more than $10 worth of materials. If you plan on spending more than $10 on photocopying, please see the Circulation Desk.
Where are cookies and sodas?
Cookies, candy, coffee, and tea were available free of charge during Finals Week from 10pm-1am. We hope you enjoyed these treats!
We also have snack and beverage vending machines in the lower level of Hagerty Library, in the small room adjacent to the computer lab, to provide you with tasty treats during those late night study sessions.
Stop allowing non-Drexel student/faculty to utilize the library. Almost daily a PPA person comes into the library and does not respect “no cell phone” zones and it is distracting.
Drexel Libraries are committed to providing service first and foremost to Drexel students, faculty, and staff, but the library is open for public use during daytime hours.
Have a cart to give away books you don’t want anymore before you throw them away maybe.
Thank you for this suggestion. We do have a “book giveaway”. This is located on the third floor of the library outside Room 310. Any books on this shelf are free for patrons to take and enjoy!
We need a reference librarian from 5-6pm, just before we start evening classes.
Thanks for your suggestion. We do have a reference librarian available every Monday through Thursday from 5-6pm. There is also reference help available from 8:30am-5pm on Fridays. We do not have a reference librarian on Fridays from 5-6m, because past statistics do not show enough use to warrant having a reference librarian on duty.
I went to put books back on the shelves tonight that I’d been using, and a librarian told me not to so that other librarians could take count of what books were being used. Is that true? Should I not be nice and put the books I’ve used back on the shelf?
Yes, it is true.
