Benefits and Social Insurance

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.


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.
