NOT FINDING WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR?

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 interlibaray loans services such as E-ZBorrow and UBorrow:

If materials are unavailable through RUL, try the following:

  • E-ZBorrow is a 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 the Library Catalog

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

  • Immigration and labor
  • immigration and globalization
  • immigrants and women

Searches using Library of Congress Subject Headings can yield more targeted results. Subject headings can be further narrowed by adding location: (United States or Canada), aspect: (government policy, economic aspects, social aspects), or population: (women, Hispanic-Americans, Asia).  Examples:

  • Emmigration and migration.
  • United States--Emmigration and migration--Economic aspects.
  • Immigration and Naturalization Service. United States.
  • Immigrants--New Jersey
  • Illegal aliens--United States--History
  • Emigration and immigration law--United States

To find other Library of Congress Subject Headings, type in (“Emigration and immigration”) in the search box, select “Subject begins with” from the drop-down menu under the search box. “Emigration and immigration” will be the top choice.  Also look under the “Try these too” in the list on the right.
