Research Support

Four students working in the W. W. Hagerty Library (second floor).

Drexel University Libraries provides access to valuable tools and resources to support researchers of all levels from freshmen to faculty. Librarians provide expert research advice through one-on-one consultations, workshops, self-guided tutorials, and subject-related guides.

Librarians by Subject

Our subject librarians have extensive breadth and depth of knowledge in their fields of study and are available for one-on-one meetings to discuss research. They also lead larger workshops, including class-based workshops.

Library Guides

Library Guides offer great starting places for beginning your research. They are created by subject librarians and provide detailed information about resources important to different areas of research.  You may also want to make an appointment with a librarian to discuss more individualized help. Try the 'Library Guides' link on the right to get started.


The Libraries’ online tutorials offer self-help videos and lessons to help you navigate scholarly research and communications, including citation style manuals, search tool overviews and more. 


The Libraries offers workshops on resources, tutorials, skills, or services to help you to better understand research strategies and available resources. Faculty may also request in-class sessions.


Live chat with a member of the Libraries' staff using the chat box to the right. This service is terrific for quick questions or to initiate contact with Libraries staff.
