Research Services During the Temporary Library Closure

Jenkins has temporarily closed our physical library through April 30, 2020, but our reference staff is still working remotely, ready to help with your research requests. You can reach us by emailing or by leaving a voicemail at 215-574-1505. We will be monitoring these during our reduced hours, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We can provide many of the same services that you are used to, like recommending databases and titles for unique research questions and helping to find specific legal forms. Members have access to a vast collection of resources that are available from home or the office. We have options for treatises, ebooks, forms, briefs, legislative histories, and case law.

Have a request that requires one of our onsite only databases? Our librarians have access to Westlaw, Lexis Advance, Bloomberg Law, and Cheetah. We are still offering assistance with research and document delivery requests that require these databases.

We'll let you know if our normal research, search, and document delivery fees apply. There is a lot we can do for you for free!

Reach out to our reference staff and let us help with your legal research throughout the temporary library closure. Continue to check for any updates.
