Hanging bookshelves on plaster?

Does anyone know how to install track shelving (metal tracks with movable shelf supports) onto plaster walls? Can plaster support the weight of shelves like this containing books? Are there studs in plaster walls? I have a feeling this is not a good idea, but I'm hoping it could work; if you know anything, please let me know. Thanks.

Installing metal track shelving

Locate studs and install metal tracks into studs.
