Horticulture: Introduction

A guide to research in the area of horticulture at the Temple University Libraries


Welcome to the Horticulture Research Guide.  This guide will introduce you to many of the rich resources the Temple University Libraries system provides to support this discipline. Materials are available in many different formats, including print, electronic and media.

Due to the breadth of this subject area, print materials might be located right here in the Ambler Library, the Depository, our storage facility, or Paley Library at main campus.  If the material you need is in one of the other locations, you may request circulating materials by using the

           Request button   radio button located at the top of the book record.  After filling out your information and marking that you want the material sent to the Ambler Library, the process has already begun to bring the material from there to here!  This process should take approximately 3 days, but you will receive an e-mail when your material is waiting for you here at the Ambler Library on the Self Serve shelf behind the service desk.
