Find Books

Use the QuickSearch box (below) to find books, videos, media, microforms, and other materials located on all Rutgers campuses. 
  • If you are looking for a specific book, it is best to use Advanced Search to:
    • Browse by Title
    • Search by:
      • ISBN
      • Title AND Author
  • If you would like to find books about a topic you are interested in, it is best to search by: Subject / Any field
For further information about how to use QiuckSearch, please visit the QuickSearch Help page or Ask-a-Librarian.

Search Tips

1. The basic Quicksearch box above performs a search in any field for your search term(s). The results will include books, articles, and other types of resources. To specify where you would like the Quicksearch system to look for your search term(s), to combine search terms, and/or search only for one type of resource, you must use the Advanced Search option.



2.  Depending on the topic you are researching, you may find one or more of these searches helpful:

·         Any field: govern* AND  Any field: dystopia

·         Any field: govern* AND  Subject: anarchism

·         Any field: blindness AND  Any field: relationship

·         Any field: sex AND  Any field: power

·         Any field: epidemic response AND  Any field: country or nation or government

·         Any field: disability rights


3.  If you want to search for books, be sure to select Books under the "Resource Type" pull-down menu.


4.  Remember that although it is possible to limit your results to only material in the Dana Library, when you do that, you will NOT see potential gems located in other Rutgers libraries, including all that is Available Online.

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.

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.
