The Rutgers University Libraries--New Brunswick (RUL-NB) button making initiative began in the Fall of 2016.  Since the start of this project the libraries have created over 15,000 button and button magnets. Button making is used for teaching patrons about the libraries, copyright, finding images, visual literacy, and more. 

If you have questions about button making on the RUL-NB campuses please contact Megan Lotts, or Tara Maharjan,
