Partnership between Libraries and Drexel Smart House helps Students Develop Information Literacy Skills

By: Jenny James Lee with assistance from Jay Bhatt, Drexel University Libraries' Liaison Librarian for Engineering and Chris Baccash, Vice President for External Relations, Drexel Smart House

The partnership formed between Drexel University Libraries and the students of Drexel Smart House (DSH) has led to a unique relationship built on a culture of collaboration and a dedication to building strong information literacy skills.

DSH, a student-run organization founded in 2006, seeks to engage students both in and out of the classroom, bringing laboratory research and classroom instruction into a real world environment. The program encourages collaboration between disciplines, working in areas such as architecture, civil and architectural engineering, mechanical engineering, interior design and digital media design.
