Introducing QuickSearch

What changed?

On June 5, 2018, Rutgers University Libraries released QuickSearch, a new tool that allows you to search our vast collection of print and electronic resources using a single easy-to-use interface.

QuickSearch replaced a number of existing library services, including:

  • The Library Catalog
  • Articles+
  • Electronic Journals & Publications
  • Citation Linker

Our collection didn't change size. In fact, the new streamlined search interface allows you to search across collections and media types with greater efficiency, accuracy, and relevancy.

Why the change?

We launched this new service to provide you with the best possible online experience. In response to feedback from the Rutgers community, we’ve made it easier to search for library resources, request materials, and manage your library account within a single integrated interface. We want to make sure you can find what you need, when you need it.

When did this happen?

QuickSearch went live on June 5, 2018.

What happened to my saved items and searches?

  • Items and searches saved from the Library Catalog to your library account are no longer available
  • Items and searches saved from Articles+ to your My EBSCOhost account will be unavailable after September 30. 

If you’re conducting research and want to store your sources and items, we recommend that you consider using one of our citation management tools: EndNote, RefWorks, or Zotero. Not only will a citation manager provide continuity after we move to our new system, it will also help you store, organize, retrieve, cite, and share references, as well as manage PDFs and images. If you have questions about which citation manager will work best for you or need help setting up and using a citation manager, email
