The Rutgers Libraries have many books, including online books. To search for books, use the Rutgers Libraries catalog.
I can't get to the library, what books do you have online?
It can be difficult to tell if a book is scholarly unless you are looking at it. However, you can sometimes tell if it is published from a university press, or has editors. Check to see if it has a bibliography once you've taken it from the shelf.
Don't limit yourself to just the Rutgers Libraries Catalog. We can obtain books from many other libraries for you. Here are some other places to search. Once you have found a book elsewhere, that we don't have, please use our E-ZBorrow service to order the book.
WorldCat offers more than 110 million bibliographic records representing holdings information from libraries in forty-five countries. Many New Jersey libraries, including Rutgers, contribute on a daily basis. WorldCat includes resources in 400 languages, dating from before 1000 BC to the present.
Google Books provides information on millions of books and many of these books allow you to search for your terms inside the book. Don't be surprised if the Google search engine finds books for you that Rutgers does own but didn't appear in your Rutgers Catalog search because we can't search inside our books.
