How to search the library catalog for materials in Special Collections and University Archives

Printed materials in Special Collections and University Archives (SC/UA) can be found by searching QuickSearch. In addition, QuickSearch provides summary descriptions of most of our other holdings, many of which are more fully described in separate finding aids.

You can search for SC/UA materials by doing either a basic (keyword) or advanced search, then using the filters on the left-hand side of the page to limit by Library (Special Collections-University Archives) and by Resource Type (books, maps, etc.). Please note that archival collections may be found under "manuscripts," "archival collections," and "other" (select all three checkboxes). 

Please be cautioned that some materials related to SC/UA collections might be held in other Rutgers libraries, such as Paul Robeson's audiovisual recordings. Ask a librarian if you have questions about specific collections.
