Reserve a Room

Two students collaborating on an assignment in a library study room.

The Libraries has a variety of collaborative spaces that may be reserved for group use including Group Study Rooms, Learning Spaces and Classrooms and Conference Rooms

Group Study Rooms

Small rooms are available within each of the Drexel University Libraries for use by groups of students requiring conversation for group project work or studying. Because this type of work is frequently necessary for Drexel University assignments, cooperation is needed to extend the use of the rooms to as many students as possible.

Reserve a Learning Space

Data Visualization Zone

The Data Visualization Zone (DVZ) is located in the Dragons' Learning Den in the W. W. Hagerty Library. It is available for student exploration of data retrieval and visualization, and mapping and analysis with geographic information systems (GIS). The DVZ is a place for students to explore this area of data literacy alone or in a group and includes a large interactive display space to experiment with innovative technologies and data.

The DVZ includes an 80-inch flat panel monitor with USB ports and HDMI connections, allowing students to view sample data visualization projects and research data to deepen their data literacy skills. Members of the Drexel community can reserve the space using the Libraries' room reservation system. Visit the Service Desk on the first floor of the Library to check out an HDMI cable to connect laptops or a wireless keyboard to the Windows PC linked to the 80” monitor.

Practice Zone

This collaborative work space in the Dragons' Learning Den includes an 80" ThinkHub monitor with a multiuser software app designed to help groups brainstorm, collaborate, visualize and problem solve together on screen. Students can share content from their personal devices using an app (Air Connect). Students can view content from multiple devices/users at one time. The monitor can be surrounded by mobile white boards and includes soft stair-style seating, creating a small-theatre ambience to support collaborative rehearsals, practice and design.

Club House

This enclosed work space in the Dragons' Learning Den with wall-mounted monitor allows groups to practice presentations or work collaboratively in a semi-enclosed space.

media:Scape Workstations 

media:Scape is a collaborative workspace in which users can share digital information equally on two flat screen monitors positioned at the end of the table.

Hagerty Library, and one at the Library Learning Terrace. (Note: The Library Learning Terrace is currently closed.) The media:Scape workspaces are available on a first come, first served basis.
