Welcome to the James B. Carey Library

The James B. Carey Library, located in the Labor Education Center, offers reference and information services to the students and faculty of the School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR), the larger Rutgers community, labor relations and human resource management professionals, and the working people and employers of New Jersey. We maintain a specialized collection of journals, texts, reporting services and databases in industrial relations and human resources.

The library is open to the public. The library is part of the Rutgers University Libraries system (RUL) and the School of Management and Labor Relations and our experienced staff is ready to assist you.

New Books - November/December 2013

Nineteen new books were added to the SMLR collection over the past two months. The topics of these books cover labor unions and markets, hospital care, merchant mariners, women executives, Woodrow Wilson, work environment, maternity leave, foreign workers in Nepal, civil rights of foreign workers, management and leadership, and the working class. A complete listing of all books, with subjects, call numbers, and a brief excerpt can be found here.  You can also find the September/October 2013 books here


Carey Library staff is available during library hours to answer questions about library services and to help you with your research. If you cannot come in person, call or email us.
