Drexel Libraries Moving to EZProxy Access for All Online Resources

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.

Leisure DVD Collection Now Located on the 2nd Floor of W. W. Hagerty Library

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.

Libraries Reorganizing Bound Journal Collection

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.
