Welcome to the Rutgers University Libraries. The Libraries at Rutgers support and enrich the instructional, research, and public service missions of the University through the stewardship of scholarly information and the delivery of information services. We serve the entire Rutgers University community, other universities, major industry, and the general public. More than three million patrons pass through our doors every year. Our staff takes great pride in the services they provide and we hope you will as well.
Working at a large academic library offers you many advantages as students of Rutgers University. The knowledge you gain here can help you with your own academic research and studying needs. Based on your work performance, we will be happy to provide you with a reference for future employment or scholastic goals.
