Labor Relations and the Sports Industry

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.


In many cases, library materials unavailable from the Rutgers University Library system can be ordered through a variety of delivery options, including campus delivery of books and journal articles held in other RUL libraries and interlibrary loan services such as EZBorrow and UBorrow:

If materials are unavailable through RUL, try the following:

  • EZBorrow is a service offered to Rutgers students. Materials are accessed from a network of over thirty university libraries. Access EZBorrow 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.
