Finding Books in IRIS

The IRIS catalog is the gateway to all information resources located in the Rutgers University Libraries.  Use keywords--Title Keyword or Subject Keyword-- to search for the appropriate materials.  Some examples:

  • Baseball and Labor Unions
  • Sports and Economics
  • Labor Relations and Basketball

The most effective way to search for books in IRIS is to use the subject headings assigned to each topic, company, or person. Below is a list of subject headings that are related to the sports industry.  Try the suggestions below in the Subject Begins With field of the IRIS widget that appears below, or follow the link to the RUL catalog

  • Baseball players--Labor Unions--United States
  • Baseball--Economic aspects
  • Collective Bargainng--Baseball
  • Sports Administration
  • Sports--Economic Aspects

These examples use 'Baseball"; you should of course substitute your target sport when doing a subject heading search.

There are a variety of ILL/Delivery options, including campus delivery of books held in other RUL libraries and electronic delivery of journal articles held by RUL libraries:
