Have You Met Rutgers-Newark?

The Place Where America's Music Lives

Want to visit a place where jazz not only lives but surrounds you and immerses you in the distinctive sounds that make jazz the All-American sound of music?

Come to the Institute of Jazz Studies, the largest and most comprehensive library and archive of jazz and jazz-related materials in the world. IJS began life as the collections of jazz lover and pioneering historian Marshall Stearns in 1952.  In 1966 the IJS became part of Rutgers in Newark, and 1994 moved to its current home on the fourth floor of John Cotton Dana Library, 185 University Ave., Newark.
