Philadelphia, PA (July 25, 2011) – Drexel University Libraries concluded a milestone event towards shaping the future of the organization on Thursday, July 21, 2011. The event, a Future Search conference, brought together nearly 60 people, representing the diverse stakeholders of the Libraries, at the Queen Lane campus of the Drexel University College of Medicine.
Highly interactive, the process took a holistic look at the theme, The Future of Drexel’s Libraries: Advancing the University’s Strategic Transformation. Attendees reviewed shared past and present experiences to reach a common ground in identifying an exciting future for the Libraries. This new future emphasizes collaboration, leadership, integration of technologies and curation of information resources, as well as the development of innovative spaces to advance teaching, learning and scholarship at Drexel and in the broader communities. This was accomplished through working exercises, small group discussions and creative reporting of insights.

The twilight opening began at 9 PM and featured music from DJ Mike Mannix, finals’ week snacks and colorful glow stick bracelets. As the patio outside the Terrace filled with attendees, their wrists aglow, the sighting of the first star kicked-off the opening remarks.
Dean of Libraries, Danuta A. Nitecki, spoke to the crowd about the exciting possibilities of the new Library Learning Terrace and the opportunity for student feedback to help define the space. “This twilight event is an excellent correlation for what this new Terrace is.
