Drexel Libraries Borrowing Procedures

Access Physical Materials

Request Digital Copies of Materials in our Physical Collection

Use DragonSearch to find available content owned and licensed by the Drexel Libraries.

If an item from our physical collection is only available in print, Libraries staff can digitize portions of the item, like journal articles and book chapters, upon request. We will send digitized materials to the confirmed email address within three business days.

Please submit your request for digitized material directly through ILLiad, our interlibrary loan system.

Course Reserves

Information for Teaching Faculty & Staff:

Print and electronic course reserves are now available. Please visit our website or email to discuss your options.

Information for Students:

Print and electronic course reserves are now available. Any electronic materials placed on reserve are accessible via your Blackboard Learn course shell. Print textbooks and other physical course reserves materials, including books and DVDs, are available in the W. W. Hagerty Library. Visit the Service Desk on the first floor to request on-site access to print course reserves materials.



Return Physical Materials

Return Physical Items

If you received a physical item in the mail, you should have received a pre-paid return shipping label. Package the material in a small box or shipping envelope and use this shipping label to return the item to the Libraries. You may place the package in any UPS drop box, including the drop box located on the lower level of Queen Lane, to the right as you exit the elevators.

Clients may also return physical materials via the book drop bin at the W. W. Hagerty Library on the University City campus.
