Drexel's Library Learning Terrace was the focus of a recent TIME article by Tim Newcomb about a new trend in libraries. You can read his article at time.com.
We invite you post and share your comments below. What do you think - is a bookless library still a library?
Theft is the number one crime on the Drexel campus, and your laptop is a prime target.
Please do not leave your laptop unattended for any amount of time in any public space, and that includes the library. Going to the bathroom, stepping away to make a phone call, and popping outside for a hotdog or cigarette all count as lengths of time away.
Even if you ask a neighbor to watch your stuff, his or her studiously bent eyes might not be quick enough to catch a seasoned thief.
The Drexel Writing Center will host "Research Skills and Database Searching for Graduate and Advanced Undergraduate Projects" on Saturday, February 12, 2011 from 3 to 4 p.m. at the W.W. Hagerty Library, room L33 (33rd and Market Streets).
This workshop will be run by a reference librarian who will focus on methods to make researching topics efficient and effective.
This event is free and open to all students, but please register.
