Articles at Rutgers Libraries delivered to your PC

Service improvements in the Rutgers Delivery Service (RDS) at the Libraries will allow users to receive articles more quickly, more conveniently, and with more storage options.

Starting June 1, 2004, RDS will email articles from the library on one Rutgers campus (Camden, New Brunswick/Piscataway, Newark) or the Libraries Annex to a Libraries user's PC on another campus, at no cost (for articles up to 30 pages long). To use this service upgrade, Libraries users must have an email address and barcode listed on the Libraries database and a PC with Adobe Acrobat, version 3.0 or higher. Users without access to a PC or Adobe Acrobat may use the public access PCs in any of the libraries.

For more information on this service improvement, and other RDS policies, please see the RDS Web page:

Another new option allows users to request an article to be delivered from their local Rutgers library to their PC, for a fee of $5 for articles up to 30 pages long and $0.25 for each additional page. To order an article delivered under this new service offering, users must have either a personal or departmental deposit account with the Libraries. Guidelines on setting up these accounts are available at:

For answers to any questions about these new service options please write to the Ask A Librarian service, accessible at this Web page:
