The PC computers are garbage. I suggest that Hagerty get more Macs or upgrade their PCs because the PCs always get limited connectivity on all Dragonfly networks. Meanwhile the Macs get instantaneous, full bar connections. To accompany the growing Drexel library population, please buy more Macs.
We know that the Macs are quicker to connect to Dragonfly than the PCs.
The Macs should have Photoshop on them; there’s no point in having them otherwise.
Thanks for your suggestion. Hagerty's computers are equipped with the same software that is available to the university at large, and Drexel does not have a site license for Photoshop. However, software is constantly reviewed for all public systems, so your request has been noted. Meanwhile, if you need to use Photoshop, there are computers in Korman that have it installed.
In case you haven't noticed, there's a lot going on in Hagerty's lower level. We're in the midst of a two-week blitz of classroom teaching, which means that L13-C and L14, our two main computer classrooms, will be sporadically out of commission each day.
Looking for a computer? Fear not!
Ever come to Hagerty Library to get some work done and find all the computers are taken? Next time, please don't give up, because we've got other options.
You can bypass the crowd by checking out a laptop from the circulation desk.
If you haven't been on Hagerty's main floor in the last 2 hours, then you haven't seen our new Macs. We've just installed 12 brand spankin' new Macs in the computer hubs, and they are terrific. Come by and check them out, but don't wait too long, because they're already very popular.
Please install full Microsoft Office on the second floor computers. (i.e. Microsoft Word).
Thank you for your recommendation. The computers on the second floor are primarily intended for access to the library’s catalog—that’s why they’re placed near and among the book stacks. We know that people use them for checking email and other quick tasks, but we don’t want people to use them for more than a few minutes. This way everyone will be able to check the catalog when they’re in the stacks.
We've got new computers!
Next time you're in the main floor computer hub at Hagerty Library, you'll notice something different--namely smaller, faster computers with bigger, better monitors.
