Discover and access the Drexel Libraries’ robust authoritative online information resources—including journal articles, ebooks, databases, and streaming videos—from anywhere, any time.
Access the Libraries' authoritative online information resources using DragonSearch, the Libraries' online discovery search tool:
Browse the stacks in the W. W. Hagerty Library or request to have any item in the stacks at Hahnemann Library shipped to another Libraries location.
The Libraries offers several services to provide access to physical materials. Visit our Borrowing Guide for more information about requesting access to physical materials.
Note: that the Drexel Libraries does not sell textbooks assigned by your professors. You can purchase your textbooks in the University Bookstore unless otherwise specified by your professor. The bookstore is located at 33rd & Chestnut Streets in the MacAlister Building – the entrance is on the corner of 33rd & Chestnut. The only time you should come to the Libraries for a course textbook is if the instructor puts the materials on reserve.
Loan periods for physical items vary by type of material:
Most library items can be renewed online using your Drexel ID and password. Simply log in to “My Library Account” on our website to renew only. Or, call or visit the service desk at the W. W. Hagerty Library to talk to a Libraries staff member in person.
For more information about loan periods, visit our website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Open Access (OA) is a publishing model that aims to increase access to the results of scholarly research. Open Access provides free and unrestricted online availability to research articles and data. OA materials are made available through OA journals and subject specific and institutional repositories. Quality Open Access journals have the same peer review process as traditional journals.
Learn more about Open Access and how to find OA resources by visiting our Open Access Library Guide.
