Access, Borrowing and Delivery
Establish your Library Account, Barcode and PIN
To access the Libraries’ electronic resources or borrow books, you must establish a library account. You can register for an account by filling out the online registration form or by visiting or calling any library circulation desk. Once established, your account will be renewable annually.
Remote Access to the Libraries' Resources
Emeriti may access the Libraries’ licensed electronic resources from off-campus by logging in with their library barcode and PIN (see above).
Items from the circulating collections are loaned to faculty until the end of the semester. You may renew circulating materials at the end of the term, unless they are recalled for another borrower. For more information click here.
Delivery and Interlibrary Loan
Faculty emeriti can request journal articles from any Rutgers University library as well as delivery of materials not in the Rutgers University Libraries collections. More information about these services is found here.
Here is a direct link to the Interlibrary Loan and Article Delivery login for faculty emeriti. A library barcode and PIN is required.
