About the Health Science Libraries

Welcome to the Health Sciences Libraries!

Our health sciences libraries support the information needs of RBHS faculty, students and staff throughout the RBHS schools and institutes statewide.

We’re thrilled to welcome you back to our varied locations.

The academic, research, and patient care programs at Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences are geographically dispersed as are the libraries which support them. The libraries that primarily serve the RBHS community are the George F. Smith Library of the Health Sciences (RBHS-Newark), the Robert Wood Johnson Library of the Health Sciences (RBHS-New Brunswick), and the Library of Science and Medicine (Piscataway). In addition, the libraries provide access to resources to clinical faculty and trainees, which are part of Rutgers–Health and the RWJ/Barnabas partnership. The libraries support those in residency programs and preceptors/voluntary faculty aligned with Rutgers.

With the movement from print to digital, and physical to mobile, just-in-time access to library resources from classrooms, laboratories, and patient care settings is available where and when needed.  Resources are available via our robust website and accessible from your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.  Our librarian experts are available to consult with you to meet your information needs. We can be contacted virtually via chat and via Ask-a-Librarian or visit our Meet the Experts webpage to consult with your school’s liaison librarian.  Our highly skilled librarians provide instruction in all of these settings, and virtually, using web-enabled technologies for those in remote locations.

Send us your suggestions, comments, and requests. We are eager to support your research, clinical and instruction needs. Let us help you succeed!
