Drexel Libraries Student Orientation Guide

We're Here To Help

Have questions about a course-related project? Want to learn more about the Libraries' resources and services? Or maybe you just aren't sure where to go for answers or how to start a project.

We're here to help---virtually and in person! 

Schedule a Consultation with a Librarian

Schedule a virtual or in-person consultation with an expert librarian to discuss course-related projects, strategies for finding and evaluating authoritative information, and approaches to utilizing, organizing and presenting scholarship.

24/7 Live Online Chat

You can chat with Drexel Libraries staff live online, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  

Simply start by typing your question in the chat box, and we'll connect you with one of our staff. You will find the chat box on our homepage (see screenshot) or on the left column of this orientation guide. 

Need help outside our normal service hours? You can get general assistance 24/7 through the POWER Library “Chat with a Librarian” service, a chat service staffed by librarians in Pennsylvania and other nearby states. (Use the same chat box on the library homepage or on the left column of this orientation guide to speak with a librarian after our normal service hours.)
