Support for Alumni

USciences alumni are always welcome to use the J. W. England Library. Please tell us in advance via Ask A Librarian if you plan to visit on a night or weekend. Upon arrival, call 215-596-8960 and a library employee will open the door for you.

While you're here, you may access our electronic resources, use our print collection, or check out a limited number of books.

The Library does not own our electronic resources but only leases them under strict contractual agreements that restrict their use to current faculty, staff, students, and walk-in patrons. Therefore, we cannot give alumni remote access to them. In addition, some resources cannot be accessed by walk-in patrons due to licensing agreements.

We'll be glad to answer quick questions, such as foreign drug IDs, or to locate a reference for you. Visit Ask A Librarian to submit your question online or browse our knowledge base of past answers.

Alumni may also request delivery of up to 10 articles a year at a special rate from the Library collection, or through Interlibrary Loan. For more information on this service, please call 215-596-8969, or email us at
