A Personal Librarian For Every Drexel Freshman

“September 03, 2010

Drexel University, PHILADELPHIA
While the role of libraries on college campuses continues to change with the plethora of online sources available to students, Drexel University is aiming to personalize the experience by establishing the “Personal Librarian Program.” Through this program, each of the 2750 entering freshmen is assigned to a librarian.
“The program is a natural extension of what libraries have done for a long time, but now we are adding a more personal element,” said Dean of Libraries at Drexel Danuta A. Nitecki.”
