I am the department's contact in Alexander Library for European and Asian history and Jewish studies and I am also an historian of modern Romania and Hungary, and was Director for 2010-11 of the Institute for Hungarian Studies. Many of my publications are freely available in RUcore. I have budgets to build collections in all these fields and I meet with faculty and students to discuss finding and using history resources in the Rutgers University Libraries and beyond. Feel free to suggest materials we should add to our collections or if you think your class might benefit from extra instruction in the research process. If you have any questions or problems regarding library resources or services, please call, email, or drop by.
