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:

  • Health care systems,
  • Employee benefits,
  • Benefits legislation,
  • Deferred compensation

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, taxation, law and legislation), or population: (women, Hispanic-Americans, Asia).

  • Pensions
  • Employee Fringe Benefits
  • Health maintenance organizations
  • Medicare
  • United States, Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974

To find other Library of Congress Subject Headings, type in one of the above headings (example: “Employee fringe benefits”) in the search box, and select “Subject begins with” from the drop-down menu under the search box.  After the subject heading you typed in, there will be a link named to “related headings”; “Employee fringe benefits”, for example, has 13 related Library of Congress subject headings.
