The Alcohol Studies Database

We are pleased to announce that, through the efforts of the Center of Alcohol Studies Library and the Scholarly Communications Center Web access is now available for the Alcohol Studies Database.

The database contains records for books, book chapters, journal articles, government documents, conference papers, and dissertations covering biomedical and psychosocial aspects of alcohol use, as well as a growing number of records on other drug use/abuse. The database also includes records for selected popular, educational and prevention materials such as textbooks, curricula, training manuals, and videotapes. Each entry provides full bibliographic information as well as subject descriptors from the Center of Alcohol Studies' list of controlled subject headings. There are over 55,000 records in the database, representing English-language material collected by the Alcohol Studies Library since 1986.

For further information contact Penny Page (ppage@rci.rutgers.edu), Valerie Mead (vmead@rci.rutgers.edu) or Ron Jantz (rjantz@rci.rutgers.edu).
