IRIS, the Integrated Rutgers Information System, is the former name for the Rutgers University Library Catalog. Implemented in the 1980s, the name was changed in 2011 as part of an effort to simplify the language used on the library web pages.[1]

The Rutgers University Library Catalog is the online public access catalog for all of the Rutgers University libraries except for the Camden Law Library, the Rutgers Law Library - Newark, the Gottfredson Library of Criminal Justice, and the Schimmel Rare Book Library.[2]

The Catalog contains records for books, periodicals, videos, manuscripts, printed music, CDs, DVDs, and other materials held by the Rutgers University Libraries, including those held on reserve for specific courses, and circulation records for all borrowers. For some libraries, items acquired prior to 1972 were not automatically included in the Library Catalog, but are being progressively added to the database. The Library Catalog indicates which libraries own each title as well as the availability of each copy of every title.[3]

The Catalog has been configured to support direct export to the RefWorks bibliographic management system. Records can be marked and then saved directly into a RefWorks account.[4]

Library Catalog records can also be exported to Zotero, an open source extension for the Firefox web browser that will allow you to collect, manage, and cite books and other materials.[5]

The Catalog is Z39.50 compliant, so bibliographic management software like EndNote, ProCite, and Reference Manager can be used to connect and to search and retrieve bibliographic citations.[6]
