Disciplinary Support Teams

The Drexel University Libraries’ disciplinary support teams offer a variety of consultation services for students, faculty, and staff, including help with course-related projects, strategies for finding and evaluating authoritative information, and approaches to utilizing, organizing, and presenting scholarship.

Our teams specialize in disciplinary support in the following areas: Health Sciences; Humanities, Social Sciences and Design; and Sciences.

Subject Guides

The Drexel Libraries' Subject Guides offer great starting places for beginning your research. They are created by our 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. 


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.
