Books owned by any Rutgers University library can be sent to a Rutgers off-campus location for you to use. When you locate a book you would like to have sent to you, you will need to log in using your Rutgers netID and password, click on the "Request Pickup" button, and select "Brookdale Community College-Lincroft" as your pickup location.
For help requesting a book, call the Paul Robeson Library circulation desk at 856-225-2848.
While in-person instruction is suspended, book delivery will likely not be feasible. Instead, you can focus on article sources or books available online through QuickSearch. To find an online book, follow the steps in the video below ("How to Find a Book by Topic") and then use the options on the left side of the screen to limit to books "Available online only."
