About 100 individuals provide their answers to the question, "Why did China boom?" in full-length videos deposited into the China Boom Project Video Archive. These individuals, many of them with considerable expertise on issues related to contemporary China, were interviewed by the China Boom Project staffers of Asia Society from 2008 to 2010. The Archive is a valuable resource on China for educators and researchers in a wide range of academic fields, such as business, economics, sociology, and history. http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/rul/projects/china_boom/index.php
Creating digital libraries in specific subject areas is both very important to scholars and an opportunity for academic libraries to support the work of academic departments. Rutgers University Libraries is addressing this need by offering a collection of over 80 classics texts in this dedicated Classics Texts Portal. Using the subject Browse list is a convenient way to become familiar with these collections - see the Search and Browse functions below. Authors represented include Aristotle, Boethius, Epictetus, Galen and Plato. Some less famous works are included. Full text searching can be done across the entire collection for those texts that are in English.
This collection of digital maps includes many historic maps from Rutgers University Libraries' Special Collections and Archives. Users can browse by subject terms (e.g. agriculture or railroads) and by counties of New Jersey. It should be noted that there are a significant number of aerial photographs of New Jersey communities included in this collection. These resources are included here as a natural complement to the map collection. Other topical collections of digital maps are in the process of being added to this website.
Growing New Jersey's digital media collections in libraries and improving accessibility is a critical issue for the 21st century. Rutgers University Libraries is addressing this need by offering this first set of video collections for public viewing. Using the subject browse list is a convenient way to become familiar with these collections - see the search and browse functions below. This work is funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and these collections will continue to grow, including both public and licensed videos. All videos will ultimately be available at the grant-funded website: http://www.njvid.net
President Eisenhower appointed a committee to help resettle refugees from the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Between November 1956 and April 1957, 32,000 refugees came through Camp Kilmer, NJ (now on the Livingston Campus of Rutgers) and found new homes and jobs in the US through the work of the Committee. After his service as Chair, Voorhees took home two boxes of its records and these eventually came to Rutgers with the rest of his papers. The records include correspondence, statistics, and newspaper clippings that document the planning, procedures, and results of refugee processing.

The Rutgers University Young Horse Teaching & Research Program videos were produced for research and classroom use, and include records of standardized temperament tests, veterinary care, and general behaviors for two "non-traditional" types of horses for which there is a dearth of data: draft horse crosses and Bureau of Land Management mustangs. The Program's research focus is on the nutritional requirements of young horses, and relationships between nutrition and behavior for these less-studied breeds; the Program also provides 30 students a year with a unique opportunity to train and handle young horses; each student has charge of a horse, and logs behaviors and other data for that horse throughout the course. Research data has been the basis of several honors theses. For more information about the Program, see http://www.rci.rutgers.edu/~ruhorse/index.html
