Resources for Graduate Students

As a graduate student, you need to access and use a wide variety of resources that are highly specialized. Whether or not you are an experienced researcher or “just a beginner”, we will work with you to guide you through the maze of resources, information retrieval strategies, and information management techniques. Our goal is to help you become a confident and skilled user of information resources and services. We strongly encourage you to take some time to receive an orientation to our information services. Call 973-720-2663 or fill out a Schedule Research Help form to schedule a session tailored to meet your needs. You can meet in person or virtually. Visit the Resources for You for complete details. 

ChengFind: Find Books & Media, Articles, and More!

When looking for books or media, you'll want to start with the ChengFind, our all-in-one-search tool.  ChengFind combines our Online Catalog with most of our Databases, allowing you to find articles, books, and other resources, all in one search!

Enter simple terms or concepts, rather than long phrases and questions.  For example, use terms like “gender” or “free trade” rather than “gender discrimination at work/glass ceiling”.  In this case, less is better…  Too many terms make it harder to find resources!

Comibine more than one term or concept to narrow your results, and use the different limits on the results page to narrow even more.

And, if you're off campus, be sure to Log In to make sure you can easily access the materials you find!
