The Libraries acquired each of these resources through the generous support of the Reinvest in Rutgers program. Securing these resources was another step in fulfilling A Bridge To The Future: The Rutgers Digital Library Initiative, the Libraries long-range plan. Users may access these resources from the front page of the Libraries website (http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu) through IRIS or from the Indexes and Databases Web page.
