Libraries now provide services to UMDNJ students and personnel in New Brunswick/Piscataway

The Rutgers University Libraries, in cooperation with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) Libraries, will now provide select library services to UMDNJ students, faculty, housestaff, and staff located on the Piscataway and New Brunswick campuses.

Services are granted for one academic year. Individuals eligible for services may register, and must re-qualify annually for continued services, at the circulation desks at either the Rutgers University Alexander Library or the Library of Science and Medicine. Borrowing privileges are available to UMDNJ students, faculty, housestaff, and staff at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS), the School of Health Related Professions (SHRP), the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS), and the School of Public Health (SPH) on the UMDNJ New Brunswick and Piscataway campuses.

These privileges include: semester loan period, renewal using the "renew your checkouts" option in the self services section of IRIS, borrowing limit of 240 items, the Rutgers Delivery Service (recalls and delivery), interlibrary loan, and use of reserve collections.

Remote access privileges to use licensed electronic information resources are extended to UMDNJ students, faculty, and staff enrolled in or employed by the joint Rutgers/UMDNJ Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) and School of Public Health (SPH) on the New Brunswick and Piscataway campuses. Remote access privileges include access to electronic reserves. Access to electronic information resources and electronic reserve documents are available to all library users onsite, including UMDNJ students, faculty, housestaff, and staff at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS) and the School of Health Related Professions (SHRP).

Members of the UMDNJ community may direct any questions about these services to: Kerry O'Rourke, Campus Library Director, Robert Wood Johnson Library of the Health Sciences (New Brunswick), (732) 235-7606, orourke@umdnj.edu. Users can also send questions to the Rutgers University Libraries Ask A Librarian Service, accessible from the front page of the Libraries website.
