Library

The TUJ library has over 55,000 books and provides access to thousands of journal and magazine titles. TUJ students and faculty are given full access to the extensive resources of Temple University Main Campus.

When conducting general searches through TUportal, the following databases are generally the most valuable for the field of education:

  • Academic Search Premier
  • Education Full Text
  • Education Research Complete
  • ERIC
  • Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts
  • MLA International Bibliography

The following psychology databases are also valuable:

  • PsychARTICLES
  • PsychINFO
  • Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection

Yet another way to conduct general searches is to use the "Subject Guides" link. You will probably want to first check the subject guide for "Education." Finally, if you know the name of the journal where the article(s) you are searching for can be found, use the "Journal Finder" link. Please consult with the library staff for more detailed information about conducting searches and other issues pertaining to the library.

Photocopiers are also available for student use.

Using the Library

In order to borrow library books, you must have a TUJ ID card with a sticker for the current semester. You can obtain the TUJ ID card at the TUJ Graduate Education Office, and you can obtain a sticker at the TUJ Graduate College of Education Tokyo Center or Osaka Center, or from the Bursar's Office in Azabu Hall at Tokyo.

In any semester that you do not register for at least one credit, you will be unable to obtain a sticker for your TUJ ID card for that semester and will therefore unable to borrow books from the library.
