All current Temple students, faculty, administration, and staff may borrow materials from Temple’s Libraries using their current OWLcard. For most Temple Libraries, the loan period for faculty, administration, and graduate students is for the semester. For undergraduates, staff, and courtesy borrowers, it is four weeks. There is a limit of three renewals.
Books and journal articles from other Temple campuses may be requested using the online forms on the Libraries’ Web site. Logging into “My Library Account” allows library users to see what items they have checked out and also to renew items. Fines are assessed for the late return of materials for most categories of borrowers.
The Library can obtain journal articles, books, book chapters, and other materials not owned by Temple. Request forms are available on the Libraries’ Web site. Most articles and other materials that were traditionally supplied as photocopies are now available in PDF format via a Web delivery service.
Temple Libraries provide access to networked electronic resources for use by faculty, students, and staff with valid University AccessNet accounts. A valid Temple OWLcard is required to use electronic resources in the library. Online resources that are restricted to use by Temple affiliates can be accessed from off-campus.
