Ambler Campus Map & Directions

Ambler Campus


The staff of the Ambler Campus Library would like to welcome you to its location on the Ambler Campus of Temple University.

We are located in the Library Building along with some School of Environmental Design Design Studios and their related rooms.  The Library portion consists of the library itself, staff offices, an open computer laboratory/instruction room, a group study room (or quiet study room, as needed), a multipurpose room, and space for our archival collections.

As a branch location of the Temple University Libraries, our students, staff and faculty have access to all of the databases and electronic materials purchased by the University Libraries.

Our Temple patrons also have access to the circulating collections in the Paley, Science and Engingeering, Harrisburg, the Ginsburg Health Sciences, and the Krausz Podiatry Libraries. Additionally, DVD's from  Media Services at Paley Library are also available for request.  We have a delivery service from main campus which carries materials requested from these other  libraries to our Ambler Library.  The request button is found directly on the book record and is  transmitted online, so no paper forms are necessary for these transactions and this shortens our turn-around time for quick access to these materials!




General Information

The boxes listed below are just a basic introduction to the wealth of resources at the library.  Since this is a geneal LibGuide to present information on the Ambler Library, and not the resources we offer, the links offered below are just the beginning, but I did want to at least give a starting point for resource searches. 

The Library and its staff members have produced many subject specific, course specific, and general LibGuide to help and guide you with your research needs.  Please refer to these as you begin your research process - your path should be straighter and shorter by using these helpful guides!
