Alumni

Alumni of Drexel University, Medical College of Pennsylvania, Hahnemann University, Allegheny University of the Health Sciences and MCP Hahnemann University are invited to use the Libraries and apply for an Alumni Library Card.

Alumni/ae must present proof of graduation. To get an alumni card or letter confirming alumni status, visit the Paul Peck Alumni Center at 3142 Market Street, call 215-895-ALUM, or visit the Drexel alumni website to fill out an online form.

A specialized collection of career-related materials is located at W. W. Hagerty Library.

Alumni may also use the services of the Steinbright Career Development Center.

Computing & Access to Electronic Resources

The Drexel University Libraries supports flexible, on-site computing resources for use by alumni.

Alumni may take advantage of free campus Wi-Fi access (e.g. via Eduroam and Dragonguest) by bringing their own laptop, phone and other personal devices to any Libraries location. 

Alumni may also borrow a Libraries laptop, subject to availability, to access MOST Drexel-licensed databases and other electronic software (some specifically restrict access) for use anywhere within the W. W. Hagerty Library. Both desktop and laptop computers are available for alumni use at the Hahnemann Library. Queen Lane Library does not offer computing services for alumni at this time. Remote access to licensed e-resources that have restricted access is not otherwise available for alumni beyond the on-site use of Drexel Libraries equipment.

Alumni interested in using a Libraries computer should speak to a member of the staff at the service desk. Alumni must present their alumni card to gain access to a Libraries computer.

Archives Collections

Drexel University Archives preserves the history of Drexel University. Alumni are invited to contact the Archivist to explore the histories of academic departments and student organizations, or to peruse yearbooks and other Drexel publications.

The Archives and Special Collections on Women in Medicine and Homeopathy offers collections tracing the histories of Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania and Hahnemann University.
