From Monday evening of this week through Wednesday morning, the Libraries experienced problems with a number of our online systems, including the Group Study Room Reservation system. We are discovering now that some reservations made earlier in the week may have been lost from the system. If you made a reservation earlier this week -- even if you received an email confirmation -- please log in at https://www.library.drexel.edu/spaces/login to confirm that your reservation is still there.
To assist in diagnosing problems with wireless connectivity in the New College Building, IRT has asked that anyone experiencing difficulty connecting to the wireless service in Hahnemann Library, or elsewhere in the building, provide information to them about the problem by completing the form at http://www.drexel.edu/irt/networks/wireless/wireless_trouble_report/. Your assistance in improving wireless service will be greatly appreciated!
ClinicalKey, our new clinical information resource from Elsevier, is now available for use on iPads. All of the content of ClinicalKey, including journal articles, e-books, point-of-care monographs, Procedures Consult and medical and surgical videos is included.
A User ID Number and password is required to initiate use on an iPad; this can be obtained from the Hahnemann Library reference desk by anyone with current Drexel affiliation. Please contact us at 215-762-7184 or email@example.com, or visit our reference desk for more information.
The Libraries' iPad Lending pilot project is moving on; the iPads have been taken out of circulation at Hahnemann Library, and early next week will be available at Queen Lane. After a testing period at Queen Lane, the project will be evaluated using the valuable feedback provided by borrowers to determine whether they will become a permanent part of the Libraries' services.
The Libraries have subscribed to Elsevier's ClinicalKey online service, which replaces the electronic content that was formerly offered through MDConsult. It offers a more robust (yet simple) searching interface and access to thousands more books and journals, as well as other sources, as noted in the following list. ClinicalKey is a comprehensive, trusted, and speedy resource for clinical information, enabling faculty, residents, and students to locate topic overviews as well as in-depth information in order to meet every day and unusual clinical challenges.
