With 26 libraries, centers, and reading rooms located across Camden, Newark, and New Brunswick, the Rutgers University Libraries boast more than five million volumes and thousands of digital resources. It’s no wonder it ranks among the nation’s top research libraries.
Rutgers is open and operating. The university has moved to remote instruction for the remainder of the spring semester. Some services and facilities may not be operating or are operating on limited schedules.
