In partnership, Drexel University Online and the Libraries are pleased to announce the addition of Videos and Datasets to Sage Research Methods Online (SRMO), effective July 1.
SRMO, licensed by the Libraries since 2012, contains Sage’s highly regarded research methods series, Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences (Little Green Books) and Qualitative Research Methods (Little Blue Books) on a robust web platform.
Last month I addressed an audience of over one hundred librarians, faculty and students on the topic of using data in advocacy.
Drexel University raised more than $800,000 to help further the University’s academic mission during its May 24 “Day of Giving: 24 Hours of Impact” event. That included over $1,900 from 48 donors raised specifically for the Drexel Libraries in support of new initiatives, including improvements to library spaces.
In May, the Libraries initiated a new subscription to Westlaw Campus Research, a comprehensive database of legal materials including cases, statutes and regulations of the U.S. government and the fifty state governments.
Finals start next week! Are you ready? Let us help you through the week with coffee, snacks and crayons. Details below!
On July 1, 2017, the Libraries will fully transition to the proxy service EZproxy. Moving to EZproxy will change how members of the Drexel community access online resources such as journal articles, databases and electronic books, while ensuring the Libraries is providing consistent access to these licensed information resources.
The Drexel Libraries’ leisure DVD collection recently moved from its home outside the Bookmark Cafe to the stacks on the second floor of the W. W. Hagerty Library. Moving the DVDs to the second floor has allowed Libraries staff to file all DVDs in one location. Previously, part of the collection was on display outside the Café, while more than 2,000 other DVDs were on reserve behind the Library Assistance Desk due to space constraints. Now, Libraries patrons will find all DVDs in one place – on the stacks at the top of the stairs on the second floor.
On Monday, June 5, 2017, the Print Resources Access Management Department will begin reorganizing the Libraries’ bound journal collection located outside the University Archives office on the lower level of the W. W. Hagerty Library. During this time, Libraries staff will clean shelving units and reorganize journals (which are currently organized according to size) by alphabetical order.
The W. W. Hagerty Library had a full house on Tuesday, May 23, as more than 40 people crowded into the Libraries’ meeting space to recognize the eight recipients of the 2017 Library Celebration Awards.
