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.  From within the library catalog, click on the Book Delivery / Recall button on the upper-right.

Rutgers Libraries Catalog - Find Books

You may search QuickSearch, the Rutgers University Libraries Catalog, for books, videos, media, microforms, articles, and other materials located on all Rutgers campuses or available online full-text.
  • If you are looking for a specific book, Use Browse to quickly locate it or use Advanced Search to search by TITLE or AUTHOR
  • If you would like to find books about a topic you are interested in, it is best to use Advanced Search to search by SUBJECT.
For further details on using QuickSearch, please refer to the videos on the left or Ask-a-Librarian.

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

If none of Rutgers' libraries own the book you want (or it's already been checked out by someone else), first 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 both systems, request an Interlibrary Loan.
