Happy Birthday, Barcode, brought to you by Drexel alumni

Wonder why Google's homepage doodle featured a barcode today?  October 7 is the anniversary of the first patent for a barcode, awarded to Drexel alumni Bernard Silver '47 and Norman Joseph Woodland '47.

See their patent for a Classifying Apparatus And Method on Google patents.

For more information about N.J Woodland, see this article from the May 8, 2000 Hagerty Library newsletter (pdf).<

Ellen Pyle, Drexel Alumna, the focus of New Publication and Exhibition

Congratulations Graduates!

Our warmest congratulations to all of our students who will be graduating this week!

As you head towards that finish line, please take a minute to make sure that you've returned all books and videos to the libraries, and cleared any outstanding fines.  You can checkyour record online, stop by the circulatio

Alumni Access

Please allow alumni to access some of the journals from home. Driving down to Philadelphia just to access the journal from Drexel’s computers is just wasting people’s time and gas.

Thanks for your comment.
