On Line Catalog:
The on line catalog is the most comprehensive way of finding relevant materials across the Rubenstein Library's collections. Start your search from the Rubenstein's home page to limit your results to our collections. There are separate tabs in the search bar for both the catalog and our collection guide database. To ensure that you search thoroughly across our holding, run search terms through both.
