To all our students who are getting ready to graduate!
If you're finishing up your thesis or dissertations, look at http://www.library.drexel.edu/services/ccthesisbinding for information about bringing copies of your thesis to the library for binding.
It's the start of summer, the end of classes! To help you plan your study time around your holiday cookouts, here's the Health Sciences Libraries' hours for the weekend:
Queen Lane Library: close at 5:00 pm on Friday, May 27th. Closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Hahnemann Library: Regular hours Friday, Saturday and Sunday (see calendar); open Monday 10:00 am to 11:00 pm.
Do you want to brush up on your searching skills, or learn how to use RefWorks to organize your research (and magically format all those citations in APA style)?
We're very excited to announce that our self-serve Group Study Room Reservation system is now online and available for use! If our blog could make trumpet noises, you would be hearing a loud fanfare right now!
You'll find the link to the Reservation system on our homepage, right under the Hahnemann hours. Sign in with your usual credentials (Drexel email ID and password). You can see what's booked and what's available every day for the next week; you can then reserve the room of your choice for up to 3 hours at a time.
The EZ Borrow system for borrowing books from other (non-Drexel) libraries is transitioning to a new system, Relais. Because we don't think that Relais is quite "ready for prime time", we're delaying our adoption of this system while we do further testing.
In the meantime, all book borrowing will be done through our ILLiad system. Login to ILLiad using your university ID and password in the My Accounts box on the homepage, and place your request -- you'll receive an email message from ILLiad when the book you request is waiting for you at the Library.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks / Rebecca Skloot (Crown Publishers, 2010). From the author's website:
"Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine.
Congratulations to Dr. Joke Bradt!

We're loving the music video created by 2nd year med student Vanessa Prokuski, presented at the Pediatric AIDS Benefit Concert last Saturday.
We've always known that our students have many talents, but who knew that the Library could look so cool? Enjoy!
