The Library Learning Terrace
Located in the heart of the University’s residence district, the Library Learning Terrace features flexible indoor furnishings providing students the ability to work at individual tables or collaboratively in groups. Librarians and other experts will present at various times at a hub.
Expanding the Learning Terrace concept further, the Libraries is currently exploring the possibility of developing numerous additional hubs throughout the Drexel campus. These smaller stations will serve as additional learning spaces where small groups of students can collaborate and receive assistance from University staff members. The Libraries can also use these hubs to further expand upon the thriving Personal Librarian Program, in which incoming students are each assigned a personal liaison in the Libraries.
