Library Services During the COVID-19 Crisis


Until further notice, the Library is closed. We maintained limited numbers until Governor Murphy ordered all libraries to close.

While NJCU classes have migrated to an online platform and students are being encouraged not to come to campus, please remember that the Library will be open. Many of our services are already online, and you should take advantage of them:

You still have access to over 300,000 ebook volumes and 35,000 journal titles by utilizing WorldCat Discovery and limiting your results to ebooks or full text articles;

We have specific subject guides to assist you in your searching;

We have general guides to freely available curated materials;

Additional resources are also available;

Interlibrary loan will be sporadic at best, given the reduced staffing patterns at our sister institutions.

Our Ask a Librarian service will be available; however, depending on our staffing patterns, a phone call may not be readily answered. We recommend you use our online chat services for a quicker response;

Scheduling a library instruction class can still be made and we will try to accommodate the request in an online format;

The public service desks (circulation, periodicals, and reference) have all been closed, so please us our “Ask a Librarian” service

Rather than being six feet under, be six feet across from each other. Practice social distancing.

We will do everything we can to provide you with the same level of service on which you  have depended. We will get through this together.
