Occupational Safety & Health: Find Books

Guide to library resources in occupational safety and health.

Finding Books in the Library Catalog

The Rutgers 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:

    • Workers' compensation
    • Employee benefits,
    • Benefits legislation,
    • Deferred compensation
    • Industrial accidents
    • Industrial hygiene
    • Industrial safety
    • Environmental health
    • Medicine, Industrial
    • Occupational diseases


    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).

    • Statistics
    • Encyclopedias
    • Periodicals
    • Employee fringe benefits
    • Law and legislation.
    • 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.

    Interlibrary Loan and Delivery

    In many cases, library materials unavailable from the Rutgers University Library system can be ordered through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).  Use the RUL web site or request assistance from the staff member at the reference desk. There are a variety of ILL/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 the Rutgers Library Catalog (IRIS).
    • Use E-ZBorrow to request quick delivery of books from over 30 academic libraries.  If the book isn't in the E-ZBorrow catalog, use Interlibrary Loan and Article Delivery Services to request it.
    • Use Interlibrary Loan and Article Delivery Services to request journal articles from any Rutgers University library, or to request articles from one of our partner institutions via interlibrary loan.
