The Collection

Collectively the libraries provide access to over 60,000 books and thousands of periodical titles. Special strengths of the collection include American studies, political science, language teaching and linguistics, Asian art history, and religion. The library has done extensive purchasing of rare and out of print materials for our Asian and Japanese history collections.

In addition, Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) students and faculty have access to the vast holdings of the Temple University Libraries in Philadelphia.

Series and Journal Titles

Serial and journal titles are held in paper, microfilm, microfiche and online formats through the Temple University Library Portal. Journal holdings vary by title, but as a general rule our paper holdings begin in 1980. When possible and necessary for research support, we have attempted to purchase longer back runs.

You can check our magazine and journal title holdings in the Online Catalog. To find out if we own a specific issue, please contact us. Students can also check the Journal Finder on the Temple University Library Portal to locate online full text journals.

Video Titles on DVD and VHS

The TUJ library holds a collection of over 3,300 DVD titles. The collection is a mix of documentaries and feature films in English and other languages with English subtitles. The collection is geared to support the curriculum and for aiding in language learning.
