The Triangle: Storms Close Basement of Library

Submitted on September 16, 2011 - 7:51PM

By Laura DiSanto
The lower level of Drexel's W.W. Hagerty Library has been temporarily closed due to water damage following heavy rain storms that occurred the evening of Sept. 7.
As reported on the Drexel Libraries Twitter page Sept. 8, the lower level suffered water damage that destroyed the carpets. While the basement is currently closed for repairs, the first and second floors are open to students. According to Jennifer James Lee, marketing and events associate for Hagerty Library, the lower level will remain closed for a short period of time until all the carpeting can be removed and replaced. Although the damage occurred during the term break while many students were not on campus, the library is working hard to ensure the closure will not affect students too far into the fall term.

The Triangle: Learning Terrace to Open for Finals Week

Submitted on June 9, 2011 - 12:52PM

    Newly built space to continuously change with the needs of students Drexel University Libraries will hold a grand opening event June 3 at 9:30 p.m. for the newly constructed Library Learning Terrace at 33rd and Race streets, which will remain open for spring finals week. The event is being planned with a twilight theme to emphasize the new space's 24/7 availability as a study area for students, according to library marketing and events associate Jenny James Lee. 'In fitting with the twilight theme, the space will just be opening for the evening as most buildings and halls begin to close their doors,' Lee said. 'Also fitting of the theme is the flexibility of the space. The term 'twilight' often refers to something not clearly defined, something that is still being developed, or an intermediate state. The Learning Terrace is not yet clearly defined. As student learners begin to use the space, their needs will determine the future of the space and what it may or may not house.'
