About the Library

Welcome to the Rutgers University Libraries -- George F. Smith Library of the Health Sciences!

The Smith Library is your primary link to a wealth of resources: databases, full-text books and journals, training opportunities, and research assistance. Our electronic resources are available via any Internet-connected computer, tablet or handheld device, whenever you need them.

The Smith Library serves all of the schools, programs, and departments at the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) Newark, as well as distance health education programs. It is the major health sciences research library for the state of New Jersey.

QuickSearch lists resources in both print and electronic formats. Subscribed journals are also found in the QuickSearch journal search.

Information & Education librarians have produced over 70 Research Guides, compilations of highly relevant resources from the Rutgers University Libraries and the web. Arranged by subject, the guides are categorized into 20 main areas. Topics include Evidence-Based Medicine and Dentistry, EndNote, Nursing, Public Health, and information on copyright questions. 

We look forward to providing you with consistently high-quality information resources and services that are so essential to the education, research, and patient care programs at Rutgers.
