The Mabel Smith Douglass Library, located on the Douglass Campus, has a primary collection focus on women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. It is also home to the Performing Arts Library and the New Brunswick Libraries media collection.
Collections at Douglass
The Performing Arts Library collections include scores, periodicals, and books shelved on the Ravine level as well as audio-visual materials that are part of the media collection on the ground floor.
The media collection, the most comprehensive within Rutgers University Libraries, includes DVDs, VHS tapes, laserdiscs, and 16mm film on subjects selected to meet teaching and research needs.
Typically, Douglass loans audiovisual recording equipment to Rutgers students, faculty, and staff. This service is currently unavailable due to COVID restrictions.
