What We Did This Summer

Welcome back to campus!

While you were away over the summer months the Rutgers University Libraries kept busy, adding resources and improving services to support research. The Libraries are proud of the following summer accomplishments:

Adding Google Scholar to the Libraries Web pages.

Google Scholar, a new variation of the popular search engine, is focused on the unique needs of academic research.

Creating an online tutorial for our e-reserves services.

Running less than two minutes long, the tutorial provides visual and voice instruction on how to easily locate specific professors' course materials and reading assignments.
