Library Information

The following information will help start you in the right direction to access of various library-related resources.

How To Search

When it comes to searching through our various search engnes and databases using a logical sequence of short, precise keywords will help yield the most productive results list possible.  These can consist of single words/phrases, or used in conjunction with each other. 

Example - "New Jersey" and "History"

Typically, a search session has to be conducted by a specifc paramater (i.e. author, title, keyword, subject, etc.) leading to a more precise list of matches. 




Our Collections

The following links will lead you to options for primary source exploration via our own Archives & Special Collections Center information sites.  Other examples found throughout the University Libraries site can be found elsewhere within this reference guide.
