Off-campus?

It is possible for current Rutgers students, faculty, and staff to access the Rutgers University Libraries' online resources off-campus. Be sure to go through the Libraries Website and you will be prompted to log in with your Rutgers NetID and password. 

Ask-A-Librarian

There are several ways to seek help from a librarian:

Rutgers Libraries Toolbar

The Rutgers University Libraries Toolbar is a free Firefox extension (or add-on) that:

  • provides a drop-down menu to library resources
  • embeds library links on popular Websites such as Amazon.com
  • offers special functionality when you highlight terms on a Website and right-click over them with your mouse
  • allows linking from ISBNs, ISSNs, PubMed IDs, and DOIs to Rutgers-restricted online resources
  • is easy to install and easy to use

Rutgers Libraries Catalog - Find Books

You may search the Rutgers University Libraries Catalog for books, videos, media, microforms, and other materials located on all Rutgers campuses. 
 
  • If you are looking for a specific book, it is best to search by: TITLE / AUTHOR / ISBN
  • If you would like to find books about a topic you are interested in, it is best to search by: SUBJECT / KEYWORD
For further details on using the Rutgers Libraries Catalog, please refer to the video on the left or Ask-a-Librarian.

Search Tips

1.    Depending on your topic, you may find searching by the following subject keywords to be very helpful:

·         Hurricane Katrina

·         Federal Emergency Management Agency

·         Post-traumatic stress disorder

·         Muslim AND United States

2.    Note that you can combine the above search terms using the Advanced Search option

3.    Remember that although it is possible to limit your results to only material in the Dana Library (Newark), when you do that, you will NOT see potential gems located in other Rutgers libraries, including the electronic resources located under the RU-ONLINE: Rutgers Digital Library.

What if the book is located at another Rutgers library?

If the book you want is not available in your library, but is available through another Rutgers library, you can have it delivered to you at your library, free of charge:

  1. From within the QuickSearch system, search for the book.
  2. Sign in to view request options, then click the Request Item button. 
  3. For Pickup Location, select your preferred library - or choose Personal Delivery to your Home Address.

What if Rutgers doesn't own the book you want?

If Rutgers University Libraries does not own or subscribe to the book you want (or it's already been checked out by someone else), see if it is available through E-ZBorrow.  If not, see if it is available through UBorrow.  If you are unsuccessful in finding the book in either system, request it via Interlibrary Loan.
