Geography and Urban Studies

A guide to resources for Urban Studies

philadelphiaThe four research themes associated with the department of Geography and Urban Studies are Social Justice, Globalization, Sustainability, and Geographic Methods. More information at the college website.

Temple University libraries offers many resources to support these themes. This guide provides an overview to some of these and web related resources as well.

Library staff offer support to faculty and students in person and online. Don't hesitate to reach out with your questions.

Library and web resource choices

With the variety of potential topics there are multiple resources to use for student work and research. This guide will highlight some of the most commonly used but cannot identify every one. Some library licensed resources provide access to items only available within it. Web based resources are publicly available but may at times refer back to licensed products.

I will be happy to help you find what is needed for your work.

The tab labeled GUS themes identifies databases useful for each of the 4 theme topics.

Listed here are some general resources that are good places to start.

Additional Guides

Given the interdisciplinary nature of many courses here at Temple, other guides created by library liaisons to different subject areas may be useful to those in GUS as well. A few are listed here but you may want to explore and search for other topics as new ones are created frequently.
