Welcome to the Temple University Libraries
Welcome to Temple University Libraries. I am delighted to start my tenure as Dean at such an exciting time.
As you know, our university is at a moment of broad awakening, with a dedicated new administration and a campus bustling with construction and activity. The Libraries are at the center of this excitement while serving your varying needs as students and members of our surrounding community.
We are your portal to the intellectual and cultural record—however that record is embodied—that will inform your scholarship and creativity. I invite you to begin exploring our resources through our search tool, Summon. Or, start by browsing our diverse range of journals, databases, books, media, digital collections, and special collections. If you’d like assistance utilizing these collections, ask a librarian for research assistance or in-depth, discipline-specific guidance.
We also provide tools, services, and experiences that support collaboration, ideation, and innovation. Visit us to borrow iPads, Canon video cameras, Zoom digital audio recorders, and other technologies; to use computer workstations; and to scan, print, and copy the projects you create. Share new ideas at our public programs, and experience Temple’s vibrant cultural and intellectual life.
I hope that the Libraries provide you with tools and resources that help you become a more informed and productive student, scholar, researcher and citizen. On behalf of all of us, I look forward to seeing you in the Libraries soon.
Dean of University Libraries
