Introduction to Online Resources

The Rutgers University Libraries offers access to hundreds of online resources.  We realize that this might be a little overwhelming.  To help you determine which one(s) to start with, the list of indexes and databases identifies “core” and “related” indexes and databases in the areas of environmental sciences, geology and Earth sciences, etc. If you are looking for a particular index or database, however, you may find it more efficient to browse our alphabetical listing of resources.  Please click on the appropriate link below:
