Expansion of Reference Hours

Jenkins' librarians are here to help.  This week reference coverage will be from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., and we will keep you updated as we continue to expand hours and services. Librarians are working remotely during the pandemic and have access to many resources that can assist you with your research needs.  If you are hoping to have something copied from a print resource, send us an email at We'll take a look and see what we can do to help!

Our databases are available 24/7 and provide access to cases, statutes, law reviews, treatises, Pennsylvania briefs and much more. Also, don't forget about the free remote offers from Westlaw and Lexis.  These are both very generous in terms of content coverage. 

Need suggestions on the best resource to use to get started?  Ask us! You can reach us by emailing or by leaving a voicemail at 215-574-1505. We will be monitoring these during our current hours.
