The UMDNJ Robert Wood Johnson Library of the Health Sciences is located on the first floor of the Medical Education Building, on the Robert Wood Johnson campus in New Brunswick. It serves the faculty, house staff and students of the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and its joint programs, the administrators and staff of the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, as well as attending physicians of the hospital.
The Library houses over 30,000 volumes, including more than 7,500 books and subscriptions to over 500 journals in the health sciences. There is also an extensive collection of electronic resources, including numerous medical textbooks and subscriptions to over 1300 journals.
The Library has a seating capacity of 97, which includes 17 study carrels. There are thirty computers available for patrons. Two of these computers are located outside the Library for 24 hour access.
All patrons must register with the Library in order to borrow materials. Those eligible to register include: faculty, staff, house staff and students of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and its joint programs, administrators and staff of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, including attending physicians of the hospital. The Library is open to non-registered patrons for use of materials and services, including access to health-related databases and the computer lab. Registered patrons must present their ID or barcoded library card in order to borrow library materials.
Borrowing periods for library materials are as follows
|Books||four weeks; two renewals|
|Reference materials||in-house use only|
Materials borrowed from the library should be returned to the circulation desk during library hours or via the book drop located outside the library door when the library is not open.
Photocopying and Printing
Two photocopiers are available for use in the Library. Both copiers accept money or RWJ Library copy cards. Printers use only RWJ copy cards. Preprogrammed cards may be purchased at the card vend station in the following denominations: 40 copies for $5.00, 90 copies for $10.00, and 190 copies for $20.00. Each of these purchases includes a one-time fee of $1.00 for the cost of the copy card. Cards may be revalued in $1.00 increments, at 10 cents a copy/printed page.
Professional reference service is available seven days a week. A full range of library services is provided by the staff to aid patrons in obtaining information. Those requiring guidance in the use of the online catalog, assistance in locating books, journals and computer software, or orientation to services and programs provided by the Library can obtain this information from the reference staff.
Library users are encouraged to learn to do their own computerized literature searches using any of the searching options the Library has available. The Library provides mediated literature searches for patrons who are interested in this service.
Interlibrary loan is a service provided to registered library patrons to obtain materials not available at our campus library. Books, theses and some materials in microform may be borrowed. Photocopies may be requested for non-circulating materials, primarily journal articles. Allow at least one week from the date submitted to receive materials. Items available in other UMDNJ libraries may be received within two to three days. Interlibrary loans are usually free, but some may require payment of a $11.00 fee. Interlibrary loan request forms are available at the Circulation Desk. For further information, please contact Dianne Hamlette at 732-235-7610.
Instructional classes in searching bibliographic databases have been developed by library reference staff and are offered on a regular basis. A schedule of classes is posted periodically through UMDWeb and also on the RWJ Library's home page. Contact Kerry O'Rourke at 732-235-7606 for further information.
Library registration provides remote access to the UMDNJ Libraries' electronic resources. When using the remote access service, your Username is your Last Name and your Password is the last four digits of your University ID number. For more information, see http://www.umdnj.edu/librweb/access/.
University Libraries Online Catalog
The UMDNJ Libraries maintain an integrated library system that serves both UMDNJ Library and staff. Its main feature is the web-based Online Catalog.
The Online Catalog allows users to locate books, audiovisuals, journals and other materials owned by any of the four UMDNJ Libraries. It is searchable by Authors, Titles, Subjects, and Keywords (any combination of author, title or subject). Instruction in the use of the Online Catalog is available during all Library hours.
UMDNJ's Ovid system includes the following databases:
The VALE (Virtual Academic Library Environment) Project is a cooperative initiative funded by New Jersey Higher Education Technology Infrastructure Bond funds, matching institutional funds, and a grant from the New Jersey State Library. The VALE databases include:
- The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews - includes the full text of the regularly updated systematic reviews of the effects of healthcare prepared by The Cochrane Collaboration. The reviews are presented in two types - complete reviews and protocols.
Commission E Monographs - The western world's only official, government sanctioned authority on
herbal medicines, the German Commission's 380 monographs on single and fixed combination herbs represent today's highest standard in phytomedicinal evaluation. Includes assessments on herbal remedies, quality, safety, efficacy, and clinical applications.
The Library maintains subscriptions to over 13,000 electronic journals.
The Library maintains its own local area network with thirty-three(33) computers for patron use. Three of these computers are located outside the Library for use 24 hours a day. All of these workstations have full Internet/World Wide Web access. From the Library's home page (libraries.umdnj.edu/rwjlbweb), library patrons can connect to bibliographic and full text databases, electronic journals and reviewed Internet sites.
E-mail and Internet Access
Electronic mail and Internet access are provided through Academic Computing Services (ACS) campus host accounts. UMDNJ faculty or staff, and students enrolled or matriculated in a UMDNJ school or program are eligible for ACS Computer Accounts.
