Welcome Students!

We are glad to see so many new and returning students on campus and ready for a great semester.


Conveniently located adjacent to the residence halls, the Library is a comfortable space where you can you can do so much: we have Wi-Fi, 110+ computers, network printers, a copier, document scanners, quiet study space, group meeting space, lounge space for casual reading, outside reading tables and benches, a modest Café, several special collections, and of course print and online access to several hundred thousand books, journals, newspapers, government documents, and reference material.  Over the summer, we have added and updated some new tools that will make your research quicker and easier.


Our new search tool, offers a Google-like search experience across all of our indexed resources from one place.  If you would like more details on how this new tool works you can learn about it here or just give it a try.


We understand that beginning, or returning, to college is not always easy so we have created a number of research guides that can make your library experience easier and more productive. These guides are the next best thing to having a librarian sitting beside you lending a hand.  There are guides that provide you with the basics of how to navigate and locate materials in the library and others that provide in-depth and advanced information on the research process.  These guides are packed full of information so be sure to give one of them a try!


Our goal here at the University Library is to help you succeed in your academic goals.  To that end, please note: if you need some help you can reach of one of our librarians via email, 732-571-3438, or by swinging by the reference desk which is staffed during regular library hours Monday - Thursday 9:00am - 10:00pm, Friday 9:00 - 5:00pm, Saturday 9-5, Sunday 12:00pm - 10:00pm.
