Borrowing Privileges and Loan Periods

Borrowing privileges and loan periods vary depending on your status with Rutgers. Select your group for detailed information about your privileges.


Access to Electronic Resources 

Rutgers students, faculty, staff (including faculty emeriti, visiting scholars/students, and RBHS volunteer faculty) can use licensed electronic resources, such as subscription databases, from off-campus.

Most other user groups are not eligible for off-campus access, but if you are on-site at any Rutgers library, you can use a library computer to access these resources regardless of your status with Rutgers. You can register to use guest computers for a limited amount of time per day by bringing a photo ID to any Rutgers library circulation or reference desk.

There are many databases that are free for use without subscription or institutional affiliation. Visit our list of these resources.


Library Access

Our policies and procedures are different while access to library buildings is restricted. Get the most current information on using our collections and services.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Article Delivery

Need a book, article, book chapter, microform, conference proceeding, or other material that we don't have? Students, faculty, and staff from Rutgers, Rowan, and Camden County College can use our Interlibary Loan services (including E-ZBorrow and UBorrow). Article Delivery also includes scans of non-circulating print journals from Rutgers. Choose an option below or learn more about ILL and Article Delivery.
