English 102: The Yellow Birds: Using QuickSearch

This course guide was created specifically for Sam Hutchings' Spring 2019 English 102 Classes.

Why Should I Use QuickSearch?

Library catalogs are databases designed primarily to locate books and similar material within a library's collection. QuickSearch, the RUL's online catalog, does this and more. It also searches for articles, provides access to e-books and full text resources, and makes requesting resources from other libraries easier.

How to Get a Book That is Not at Dana

You have searched Quicksearch and the book you want is not there, what do you do?

  1. In the Filter My Results Column to the left of the search results, is a box labeled Expand My Search, check that box. The search will now expand beyond the Rutgers Library's collections. If it shows up now, you might be able to request it directly through ILL.
  2. If it still doesn't show up in the search results, you can do one of the following:
    1. Go to the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Article Delivery page and click on E-ZBorrow. Search for your book and when the record comes up, select it and request it. Make sure to select the library (ex. Dana Library) that you want the book delivered to.
    2. If you can't find it in E-ZBorrow, use UBorrow or ILLiad to locate the book and request. By this time, you should be able to obtain a copy of the book.
    3.  Rutgers Students may also be eligible ot borrow from other NJ libraries. For more information, ask at the Circulation Desk about VALE.
  3. Some books may also be available online through Google Books or HathiTrust Digital Library.
