Scholarly books can be great sources for research papers, ranging from general to specific information on a given topic. You can use QuickSearch to search the library catalog and locate books held at any of the Rutgers libraries.
Review the content below for additional guidance and tips about searching for books.
You can also search for books in other locations outside of the Rutgers libraries catalog.
Online booksellers or consolidated catalogs can be great places to locate additional books. Rutgers Libraries may still have these books; therefore, once you locate a book using external sources, use QuickSearch to search the Rutgers Libraries catalog for that specific title.
If the book you've identified is available at Rutgers, you can visit one of the libraries listed under "Locations" to retrieve it. If those locations are not convenient, select the Request Pickup button to have the book sent to the library location most convenient to you.
If the book is currently checked out, select the Request Pickup button. A message will be sent to the current borrower that they must return the book within a certain period of time, and then the book will be delivered to your library of choice.
If there are no copies listed in the catalog, select the EZ-Borrow button to request a copy. If there are no copies in the E-Z Borrow system, use Interlibrary Loan to request a copy from another library.
