NEW RU Libraries Resources Workshops:
Sharpen Your Searching Skills Using
Ingenta database, document delivery & research alerts

The Rutgers University Ingenta gateway provides access to a searchable database of more than 12 million citations, from over 26,000 scholarly and professional publications in a wide array of disciplines. Where Rutgers has subscription rights to publications, the database provides links to electronic full-text of articles; where subscriptions do not exist, subsized document delivery of articles is also available to faculty, graduate students and staff for millions of articles. In addition, Ingenta's Reveal Research Alerts enable you to create a personalized profile of your research interests and favorite journals which will automatically send e-mail notification of new citations to your desk-top.
