Drexel Libraries Resources Now Available to Salus Community

June 21, 2024

Throughout the summer months, Salus faculty, staff, and students will receive their Drexel University ID and DragonCard (the official University ID card).

After activating your Drexel University ID, you will unlock added resources and services available to you through the Drexel University Libraries (DUL).

Below you will find a summary of these resources and services now available to you. Check back for regular updates, or contact us with questions.

Print & Online Resources

The Drexel Libraries provides access to over 2 million books, journal articles, databases, streaming video, subject and course-specific guides, and other materials, both online and in print.

Access online resources 24/7 through DragonSearch, our online discovery tool, or visit the W. W. Hagerty Library to browse the stacks for print materials. We can also ship physical items to your off-campus address, or send you digitized articles and book chapters via email.

W. W. Hagerty Library

Members of the Salus community are welcome to visit the W. W. Hagerty Library, located at 33rd & Market Streets on Drexel’s University City campus. Students can book a group study room or individual seat in our silent study spaces. Faculty and staff may use classrooms and conference rooms for classes, meetings, and events. We also offer printing and scanning or borrow a laptop or other supplies.

Interlibrary Loan

Need something that isn’t available through the Drexel Libraries or Salus LRC? We can help you borrow journal articles, books, book chapters, conference papers, and videos from other nearby libraries through our interlibrary loan service.
