Reference services are available from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday through Wednesday, and to 5:00 pm on Thursday and Friday, when school is in regular session. We’ll also give you information by phone at 215 596-8967 or online, via Ask A Librarian.
Professors may place print materials on reserve for students. Textbooks are not routinely available from the Reserve Collection. Reserves may be borrowed for two hours (can be extended if nobody else is waiting for the material). Reserve materials may not be taken out of the Library. A valid USciences ID card is required to borrow these materials.
The library receives about 400 print periodicals which are shelved alphabetically on the second floor, and over 11,000 electronic titles are available on the campus network. See Our Journal List for specific titles and availability.
In addition to thousands of electronic journals,
the J. W. England Library subscribes to many different electronic
databases, including those that contain citations only
(no fulltext); databases with some links to fulltext articles;
databases that are completely fulltext; collections of journals
from a particular publisher; and special resources such as encyclopedias,
reference sources, and eBooks.
Call or stop by the Reference Desk for help in using any of these materials (215 596-8967) or online, via Ask A Librarian
