Finding Books in the Library Catalog

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

  • supply chains
  • corporations and pensions
  • employee participation

 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),
  • population: (women, Hispanic-Americans, Asia),
  • type of publication (congresses, periodicals)
  • Migration and immigration Foreign trade and employment
    Labor laws and legislation Globalization--Economic aspects
    Industrial relations--United States Working class--United States
    Women--Employment--United States

    To find other Library of Congress Subject Headings:

    • type in (“labor unions”) in the search box,
    • select “Subject begins with” from the drop-down menu under the search box.
    • “Labor unions” will be the top choice, followed by narrower forms of the subject (Labor unions--Accounting, Labor unions and communism, etc.) 
    • Also look under the “Try these too” in the list on the right. 

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 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.
