Three-dimensional information was the topic of conversation at 3D at Drexel: Imaging, Designing, and Printing, an event hosted by Drexel University Libraries on Wednesday, June 5, 2013. Over 50 students, faculty and staff attended the lunch-time session.
The possibility of violent acts occurring in public places haunts anyone who manages a facility where people gather. The recent tragedy in Santa Monica emphasized that libraries, iconic places for peaceful reflection and nurturing the life of the mind, are not exempt from worry about security.

Construction work will begin in mid-June on the lower level of W. W. Hagerty Library. The work will, at times, include a significant amount of noise and disruption to activities in rooms L13A, L13C and L14. The majority of work with loud equipment will occur during break week. The work will last for approximately one month.
The lower level will remain open during construction, but may be noisy at times. Facilities will work to minimize the disruption. We apologize for the inconvenience.
