As we approach the end of the Fall term, the Hahnemann and Queen Lane Libraries will be reducing hours and closing for the University break.
At Hahnemann Library:
Tenet Hospital's operations departments have announced that electrical power will be shut down in the New College Building at 10:00 pm on Wednesday Oct. 16th to facilitate systems repairs. Because of the power outage, Hahnemann Library -- including the 24-hour study space -- will close at 9:30 pm and both will remain closed until 7:45 am on Thursday, Oct. 17th. If repairs cannot be completed Wednesday night, the power will be shut down again on Thursday night, and the Library and 24-hour study space will be closed at 9:30 pm again.
The Libraries was recently made aware of HVAC [heating, ventilation, and air conditioning] repair work happening to the duct work in the New College Building that will effect Hahnemann Library. Patrons may experience variations in temperature or noise as this work is done. We apologize in advance for the effect that this work will have on the library spaces. So far, the lower level computer lab seems to be the area most drastically effected, due to the additional heat generated by the computers.
During Winter Break, Drexel University Libraries locations will be closed on the following days:
- W. W.
Hahnemann Library will close at 9 PM on Wednesday, August 15th and Thursday, August 16th due to a power outage. The outage is scheduled so that repairs can be made to the electrical substation in the New College Building.
Because both normal and emergency power will be affected, Hahnemann Library AND the 24-hour Study Space will be closed these nights. The 24-hour study space will be reopened the following mornings at 7:45, the Library’s normal opening time.

In 1993, Judith Swazey was commissioned to undertake an ethnographic study of the historic merger of MCP and Hahnemann; she and her research team were given extraordinary access to both people and documents at high levels of both university and corporate administration.
