Interlibrary Loan

In many cases, library materials unavailable from the Rutgers University Library system can be ordered through E-ZBorrow, UBorrow, and Interlibrary Loan and Article Delivery Service. To access materials, use the RUL web site or request assistance from the staff member at the reference desk. There are a variety of delivery options, including campus delivery of books held in other RUL libraries and electronic delivery of journal articles held by RUL libraries:

  • Request delivery of Rutgers books that are not in your local campus library by the Book Delivery/Recall or Book Special Request option in QuickSearch
  • If materials are unavailable through RUL, use one of the following services:
    • E-ZBorrow is a PALCI service offered to Rutgers students. Materials are accessed from a network of over thirty university libraries. Access E-ZBorrow using your NetID and password.
    • UBorrow is a similar service that offers materials from the university libraries within the Big Ten Academic Alliance. Log in as a Rutgers student to access materials. 
    • Interlibrary Loan and Article Delivery Service is a service that provides access to books, articles, or chapters of books. Log in using your NetID and password to request materials that may be unavailable from RUL.

Finding Books in QuickSearch

The Library 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 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. 

  • 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.
