Need a book?

While we are operating under COVID restrictions, if you need a physical copy of a book from Dana or another Rutgers Library, you can request the book by bringing up the record for the book in QuickSearch, logging in with your Rutgers NetID, and clicking on the Request link. You'll receive an email when your materials are ready for pickup, with instructions for making an appointment to pick up at Dana. Or, you can request delivery by mail by selecting Personal Delivery > Home Address in QuickSearch.

Please note that we cannot provide access to physical copies if there is an online version available in our collections.

Book not at Rutgers?

The fastest way to get a copy of a book that is not owned or not available (checked out/on Reserve/missing etc.) at the Rutgers Libraries is to request it through E-Z Borrow. E-Z Borrow books are normally received within about five working days.

If a book is not owned by the Rutgers Libraries and is not available via E-Z Borrow, you can place an Interlibrary Loan request.
