About the Library

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

The Smith Library Web site is your primary link to a wealth of resources: databases, full-text electronic books and journals, training opportunities, and access instructions. Find us on the Web at libraries.rutgers.edu/smith. The vast majority of our electronic resources are available on a on or off campus at any Internet-connected computer.

The Smith Library serves all of the schools, programs, and departments on Rutgers University-Newark. It is also the major research library in the health sciences for the state of New Jersey.

The lists resources in both print and electronic formats to the University community. Subscribed journals are also found in the list.

Information & Education librarians have prepared LibGuides, collections of resources from the library and the Internet which are arranged by subject.  Users will find them at https://libguides.rutgers.edu/BiomedicalHealth.   Topics include Evidence-Based Medicine and Dentistry, Mobile Device resources, and information on copyright questions.  We also provide information to consumers via HealthyNJ.  This health information portal, found at http://www.healthynj.org/, contains information in English and in Spanish on a variety of diseases, conditions, and health and wellness.

Library registration is essential to access various library resources. Registration enables users to borrow materials from the Libraries' circulating and reserve collections, as well as provides remote access to insure that there is a connection to the various electronic resources from off-campus locations at home or other clinical sites.

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