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.

Using Your Library as a Book Resource

The public library is an excellent first stop towards finding the books you need about labor relations, labor law, and the labor movement.  Even if they do not have the book in the library, they should be able to get it for you through the interlibrary loan network, which spans public and academic libraries throughout the U.S.  Also, some college and university libraries are open to the public, and allow community members reading privaleges.  If you don't see anything about these services on the Internet or in the Library, ask!
