Have you Re-encoded your DragonCard yet?

As of this morning (Tuesday, August 14th) DragonCard systems have been switched over to work only with re-encoded cards. If you have not yet had your card re-encoded, it may no longer work in the Libraries for printing and photocopying.

All Drexel students, staff, and faculty who were issued a DragonCard before June 19, 2007 at the University City Main Campus must visit the DragonCard Office to have the magnetic stripe re-encoded.

Lone Survivor [Hagerty Library]

Please purchase Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell.

Thanks for your suggestion. We just ordered this book, and it should take a few weeks to arrive. Look for it soon in the leisure book collection on the first floor of Hagerty!

If you need it sooner than that, feel free to order this book through E-Z Borrow.

Don't see a DVD you're looking for?

Give us your recommendations!

Let us know what DVDs you'd like to see at The Suggestion Box.

Where have all the staplers gone?

Looking for the staplers at the reference desk?

We've set up two new Stapling Stations in Hagerty Library to help you with all your collating/stapling/paper clipping needs.

Alumni can now check out DVDs! [Hagerty Library]

Why are alumni not allowed to check out DVDs? I believe we should be treated [like students] as far as using library resources are concerned. Hoping this will change something.

Thanks for your suggestion. After looking into this, Hagerty Library has changed its borrowing policy. Alumni are now allowed to check out DVDs. Enjoy!

Triangle Highlights Second Life Drexel Island

The July 27th issue of The Triangle highlights Drexel's virtual Second Life campus, Drexel Island, initiated by the College of Arts and Sciences Jean-Claude Bradley, and Hagerty Library's Tim Siftar (aka Jack LaPointe in SL).

Noticed Anything New Lately?

Santa made an out-of-season visit to Hagerty Library's systems department, bringing lots of new techno-goodies!

Accessing Microfilm [Hagerty Library]

Two things would make it easier when ILL provides microfilm instead of print:
1. Chair/stool at proper height. Library chairs are too low.
2. Longer time period before time-out on software.

Thanks for your suggestion. We want to make the use of the microfilm reader as comfortable and convenient as possible. With the microfilm reader now behind the Circulation Desk, the chair at the reader has an adjustable height feature.

Heroes Season 1 [Hagerty Library]


Please purchase Heroes Season 1.

Thank you for your recommendation. Heroes Season 1 is not scheduled to be released on DVD until August 28. At that time, I will check with our vendor to see if we can order this title.

Stay tuned for more information…


I am pleased to say we ordered Heroes Season 1 on DVD.

Log on, log on, and log on again [Hagerty Library]

When we use the library computers, we sign on with our name and password, yet we still must enter our name and password again to access electronic resources or course reserves from the library website. I can see if we were accessing from home, but we are in the library and have already entered our credentials (username and password). Can that extra (yet annoying) step be eliminated somehow since we’re obviously already logged in?

Thanks for your question.
