Quality Improvement

Coming soon: New Reference Consultation Scheduler

As we overhaul our website this month, we are moving to a better system for scheduling reference consultations with our liaison librarians.

The new system will be available in mid-September. If you'd like to schedule an appointment with a liaison librarian in the meantime, please see http://www.library.drexel.edu/services/librarians for the librarians' contact information. Or, for a same-day appointment, just call the circulation desk at 215.895.1500.

We hope you're pleased with the new system. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.

Measuring a Library’s Value: Discussing Assessment

What difference does a library make in student retention, faculty grants and research, or enrollment decisions? As institutions of higher education are challenged to show fiscal responsibility in the face of increasing tuition and student debt loads, academic libraries are developing new metrics to better explain their value to the academic community.

Renovation Plans to Improve W. W. Hagerty Library

Increased seating and improved utilization of space are the focus of a proposed renovation to W. W. Hagerty Library. After months of planning, library staff, along with campus planners and administrators and the architectural firm Kling Stubbins, have proposed ways to address these objectives.

“Although these are not finalized plans, I am excited by the possibility to add about 300 additional seats to the library – while increasing the flexibility of the space and improving traffic flow and decreasing noise,” said Danuta A. Nitecki, dean of libraries.

Input to Implementation: Simplifying Thesis and Dissertation Submissions

The Libraries has simplified the process of submitting Ph.D. and Ed.D. dissertations, reducing student costs by $66, and saving student and staff time. The new process uses ProQuest’s Electronic Theses and Dissertations Administrator [ETD], which provides convenient online submission and reduces steps in the submission process.
