For all reserve items, please allow 2-3 weeks for processing.
Tangible items such as books, dvds, etc. can be placed on reserve. Students retrieve the item from the service desk and borrow it for a short period of time.
Request Tangible Reserves for items in the library collection.
If the library does not own the item already, you can provide us with your personal copy, or request we order a copy.
Digital items such as journal articles, book excerpts, or streaming video can be put on reserve by adding them to your Canvas course space.
If the library does not own an item, you can provide personal copies or scans of the documents you requested. If you do not have the items, the library will request them via inter-library loan, which may delay your request.
When your request has been completed, you will receive instructions for importing your reserves list into Canvas.

Information Literacy is defined by the Association of College and Research Libraries as the skills needed to "recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information."
The goal of the Library Instruction Program is to teach students about academic research, the publication patterns of the academic community, and how to effectively use the search systems offered through the Library. Sessions encourage students to engage with larger issues that surround the search for, evaluation of, and use of information.
By working with the Drexel Library's Instruction Program, you will be working to improve student's investigative skills, their understanding of the academic world as a whole, and their critical thinking abilities, both in and out of the classroom. We're happy to work within the structure of your syllabus to see where information literacy most appropriately fits in.
For information on the acquisition, selection process, please refer to the Library's collection development policy.
