Need a book not at Dana?
If a book that you need is not available (not owned/checked out) at the
Dana Library, but is available from another Rutgers Library,
you can request delivery of that book to Dana by bringing up the record
for the book in the Catalog and clicking on tbe
Book Delivery button.
Book not at Rutgers?
The fastest way to get a copy of a book that is not owned or not available (checked out/on Reserve/missing etc.) at
the Rutgers Libraries is to request it through E-Z Borrow. E-Z Borrow books are normally received within about five working days.
If a book is not owned by the Rutgers Libraries and is not available via E-Z Borrow, you can place an Interlibrary Loan request.
Need Published Collections of Primary Source Materials?
Search the Rutgers Catalog (and other library catalogs) using the subject keywords and the word "sources." For example

or a keyword search and "sources."

You can also modify your subject search with the keywords: "archives," "correspondence," "diaries," "interviews," "personal narratives," or "memoirs."
