Libraries' Mission

The W. W. Hagerty Library lobby.

Drexel University Libraries is a learning enterprise. Libraries' staff advances the University's academic mission through:

  • Serving as educators. Librarians coach students and other learners to become confident and expert in their information literacy skills and they build partnerships with faculty and other campus experts to support discipline-based teaching and learning.
  • Supporting education and research through services that provide convenient, reliable, efficient and cost effective access to information resources.
  • Collaborating with researchers on informatics and data curation issues.
  • Fostering intentional learning outside of the classroom, in both physical and virtual spaces.

In all of their work to advance the University's mission, library staff employ purposeful design, thoughtful assessment and continuous quality improvement.
