Online Library Services and Resources


  • Books, journals, and other resources: All physical borrowing services are suspended, including interlibrary loan (ILL, including E-ZBorrow and UBorrow). We are working on a plan to make our physical collections available even while building access remains limited. We will provide a target date and additional information as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, you can still access millions of books and journals through QuickSearch.
  • Article requests: You can still request digital articles via ILL
  • New ebooks: We are adding access to thousands of new resources via QuickSearch
  • Research guides: We have thousands of research guides to help you locate curated, subject-specific online resources.
  • Borrowing, loans, and returns: Due dates have been extended to September 30, 2020 for all Rutgers and interlibrary loan materials. Please do not return any books at this time. We'll waive any late fees when you return your items.
  • COVID-19 research and information: The COVID-19 Resource Guide presents resources related to the pandemic from the NIH, FDA, Rutgers, the state of NJ, and more.




All Rutgers library locations are closed completely. We are working with the appropriate university offices to determine when and how best to reopen our buildings and provide access to our collections. Our top priority is to establish the proper safeguards so that we can ensure the wellbeing of our library employees and patrons. Plans for reopening physical spaces and collections will be shared as soon as they become available.
