Below is a list of subject headings that are related to minorities in the workplace. Try the following subject terms in the Subject Begins With field of the IRIS catalog widget below OR go to the Rutgers Library Catalog Search screen and click "Advanced Search" to combine these subject headings for a more specific search.

  • Diversity in the Workplace

  • Latino workers
  • Hispanic workers
  • Affirmative Action Programs

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:

Reference Material on Minorities and Work

Reference books are a good starting point if you are unfamiliar with the subject.  Use them to get background information, definitions of key words, and the names of outstanding scholars and writers in the field.  Reference books often do not circulate, but RUL has a number of digital encyclopedias available to students and faculty.  These are fee-based reference works, so you will need to put in your net id and password if you are not on campus.

The titles below are examples of what is available.  Titles that are available online are noted.  For more titles, see RUL Online Encyclopedias.
