Request for Research Assistance

Although the TUJ library is not readily available to all students, we want to keep the resources of TUJ and Temple University available to all students, faculty, and staff. Please submit requests for materials (books, scans, media) or schedule a research consultation using the Request for Research Assistance Form. We will do our best to make sure you have access to the materials you need to support your studies.

Reserved Materials

All reserve materials (books, DVDs, and articles) are kept at the library desk. This includes materials in the catalog with a location of "Japan Library Reserve."

If you have any questions about searching the online resources or databases, please ask us at the desk if you are at the library or contact us.
