This guide is intended to serve as a starting point for those researching New Jersey history. With this in mind, while compiling the guide preference for inclusion was given to material that is available at several Rutgers Libraries (and likely to be held by some public libraries) rather than rare or unique resources. This guide is, of course, only a selection of material that is available in the Rutgers University Libraries; the researcher is encouraged to continue searching for additional sources.
Researchers will also be interested in Kean University's own LibGuide on New Jersey History resources. It also links to the Kean University New Jersey History Project in which they've gathered together New Jersey-related items in the Hathi Trust Digital Library into a single online "collection."
