To find books about an author, select the Advanced Search option. Then enter the name with last name first in the search field. To the left of the search field, set the Field option to Subject, and change Contains to is (exact). To the right, set Resource Type to Books. Then search.
If you need a physical copy of a book from another Rutgers Library, you can request the book by bringing up the record for the book in QuickSearch, logging in with your Rutgers NetID, and clicking on the Request link. You'll receive an email when your materials are ready for pickup. Or, you can request delivery by mail by selecting Personal Delivery > Home Address in QuickSearch.
Please note that we cannot provide access to physical copies if there is an online version available in our collections.
The fastest way to get a copy of a book that is not owned or not available (checked out/on Reserve/missing etc.) at the Rutgers Libraries is to request it through E-Z Borrow. E-Z Borrow books are normally received within about five working days.
If a book is not owned by the Rutgers Libraries and is not available via E-Z Borrow, you can place an Interlibrary Loan request.
