Dentistry: Welcome

The Dentistry Library Guide is a service of the HSC Ginsburg Library providing informational resources, supporting clinical dental research, undergraduate and patient care services.

An overview

This guide is here to help you, students, staff and faculty in the dental school, find and use resources that will aid you in your educational endeavors.

You will notice there are various tabs. Each one has a specific focus. Knowing that each year students use specific books, the assigned pages(under each tab) highlight those titles and the locations they can be found in.

If you have recommendations for tools or resources you'd like highlighted here please contact Lauri Fennell,

Find and use Books at Temple

Print books are still fairly popular and common. The most popular and heavily used are kept on reserve for short term borrowing to make sure that everyone gets a turn.

Some books are also available in electronic format. The format can vary, however, along with ways to access and use the books.

Here are a couple of tips.

EBOOKSeBooks act similar to print books in the way that the library still has to buy individual copies (called licenses in the eBook world). This means that a single copy may be all that is available and therefore only one person can use it at a time.

  • About eBook formats: (You'll notice recurring names like R2Library, Science Direct, Springer, etc.) Each vendor/supplier will present the eBook in a different format with varying levels of ability to download. You can search the Diamond catalogue and look for the eBook icon, or search the vendor sites directly.


Find and use Journals at Temple

Journals and their articles are available through electronic subscriptions as well as print issues. Print collections include bound journals from previous years to current journals shelved by individual issue.

Electronic collections can be linked to directly from the database where the citation was found to the full text aticle. Look for the icon displayed with the abstract or words that say Find Full Text.

Faculty Publications
