QuickSearch provides access to the physical collections of the Rutgers Libraries and most, but not all, of its electronic resources. Try also the Advanced Search option for more sophisticated searches. Searching is open to everyone, but much of the full-text access is Rutgers-restricted. For more results or to focus results on a specific discipline, consider using one or more of the multidisciplinary and subject-specific databases (mostly Rutgers-restricted).
When you enter your keywords in the search box, you will retrieve various types of resources:
TIP: Use Resource Type on the left to narrow down to types you wish to see
TIP: Research is an iterative process. As your research topic evolves, you may want to come back and run more searches to your ideas and support your thoughts.
Subject terms are "tags" used for a preferred term for a particular concept, area, discipline, etc. in various databases - basically, the way a database or catalog defines a topic.
Searching by subject (instead of searching for your term in the full text of articles) can be a quick and efficient way to find resources on your topic. Subject terms may vary from database to database.
TIP: Use the Subjects listed in the left panel for your search
TIP: Once you found a few good articles, look at the "subjects" they have as tags and incorporate those terms in your next search
QuickSearch results are listed by relevance by default for your convenience. Use the filters on the left to narrow down your results. then you may want to look into Sorting by Date for the latest items.
TIP: Creation Date in the left panel will help to look at a particular time period
