New Jersey Environmental Digital Library (NJEDL)

Unrestricted Access


The New Jersey Environmental Digital Library (NJEDL) is a collection of literature and multimedia related to the New Jersey environment. It includes current news and reports as well as historic information. It includes scientific and technical reports, maps, inventories of environmental resources and endangered species, guides to environmental indicators, photographs, videos, slide shows and transcripts of presentations, and other resources. These resources are sourced from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, state and local agencies, research institutes, academic departments, and non-profit and non-governmental organizations. Many of the items in this collection are ephemeral or gray literature, and they are generally not available through common research tools such as library catalogs and indexes.

In addition to these digital library materials, the NJEDL contains a comprehensive directory of Environmental Organizations of New Jersey, including academic departments, research institutes, educational centers, and other organizations.

NJEDL is a joint project of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Rutgers University Libraries.
