There are several ways to seek help from a librarian:
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.
1. You may find searching by the following SUBJECT begins with terms to be very helpful:
· slave trade
· human rights
2. Note that you can combine different terms using the Advanced Search option, such as:
· subject: slavery AND subject: human rights
· subject: masculinity AND subject: femininity
· subject: racism AND subject: United States
· subject: Japanese Americans AND words anywhere: World War II
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.
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:
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.
