Work with us

Thank you for your interest in working for Temple University Libraries and University Press (TULUP)!  We employ librarians, technology specialists, editors, archivists, facilities managers, administrative specialists, and more.
We serve the Temple community and beyond, including more than 37,000 students; over 2,000 full-time faculty; and researchers and visitors on Main, Center City, and Health Sciences Center campuses in Philadelphia and on our Ambler and Harrisburg campuses. We are committed to providing research and learning services, offering open access to our facilities and information resources, and fostering innovation and experimentation. 
Our collections total more than four million physical and digital titles, over 275,000 print and electronic journal subscriptions, and more than 700 research databases. We also collect, preserve, and provide access to a broad universe of special collections, including rare books, manuscripts, archives, and photographs in the Special Collections Research Center and the Charles L. Blockson Afro-American collection. As part of our library enterprise, the award-winning Temple University Press supports our mission to advance learning and scholarship.

TULUP employees are encouraged to take active part in the organization by serving on committees within the Libraries or at the university, and receive annual professional development funds. We offer a flexible work arrangement policy with options for remote work for many of our positions.
