Center for Research Libraries
CRL is consortium of North American university and independent research libraries that acquires and preserves newspapers, journals, documents, foreign dissertations, archives, and other expensive or hard to find materials. As Rutgers is a CRL member, these materials are considered part of Rutgers' collections and can be borrowed via Interlibrary Loan. CRL has a large South Asian Studies collection.
Search across the collections of a large number of research libraries; identify relevant works and the best subject headings to use to find books on specific topics; and find out if an item is available at Rutgers or another library. Based on the over 120 million items found in the collections of the Research Libraries Group (RLG).
More than 52 million bibliographic records representing holdings information from libraries in forty-five countries. Many New Jersey libraries, including Rutgers, contribute records on a daily basis, so if you want to know if a book is owned by a nearby library this is a good place to check.
