Learning Spaces

The Drexel Libraries also offers several interactive learning spaces for students to use in the W. W. Hagerty Library. Learning spaces are perfect for groups to collaborate on projects. Many of these spaces are equipped with special tools and technology that enable hands-on learning experiences.

Data Visualization Zone

The Data Visualization Zone 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 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.

The Practice Zone

This collaborative work space includes an 80” ThinkHub monitor with a multi-user software application designed to help groups brainstorm, collaborate, visualize and problem solve together on screen. You can share content from your personal devices to ThinkHub via USB drive or Bluetooth technology.
