In order to congratulate winners of the Drexel Library Celebration Awards, the Archives reading room will close at 3 p.m. on May 6. Because we know you need to do research here, we're opening early: at 10 a.m. that day. So set your alarm clock a little early, and come to the Lower Level of Hagerty Library for all your Drexel history needs.
A researcher contacted us recently to ask about local businesses or institutions that used to exist on the present site of Drexel's campus. Fortunately, there is a fine online tool for discovering the geographic history of Drexel and the city beyond: the Greater Philadelphia GeoHistory Network (GPGN).
We're looking for an archival processing intern to work on the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia records processing project! Here's the description:
Drexel University, in partnership with the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, seeks an intern to help process the records of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
In honor of Alumni Weekend at Drexel, we've digitized two seasons of football programs. Sorry, Golden Dragons, we don't have the 1959-60 season (though we'd love to preserve yours if you have programs from that year). So we scanned the closest thing, the 1963 and 1964 seasons.
14 people have registered for our April 23 processing workshop, with a few more on the waiting list. We're excited that there is so much interest in arranging and describing archival records!
Please contact us if you'd like to be added to the list for our summer workshop (date to be determined).
