2016 program coverA Broader Vision: The Value of Multidisciplinary Lenses
38th SALIS Conference & Annual AMHL Conference
Denver, Colorado, May 4-7, 2016

For our 2016 conference, SALIS partnered for the first time with the Association of Mental Health Librarians (AMHL) to present a combined conference. Our conference "A Broader Vision: The Value of Multidisciplinary Lenses" presented a fitting theme for a SALIS-AMHL collaboration, held in a city famous for its spectacular views. Visit the 2016 conference web page for more.

Spring 2017 will mark our 39th annual conference, and we're hoping to partner again with AMHL! More information coming soon on our Conference page.


The SALIS Collection Tops 700!

The SALIS Collection, a partnership between SALIS and the Internet Archive, features books and other documents of significance to the ATOD field from any relevant discipline -- medicine, psychology, history, sociology -- and more, with books from North America, Europe, and Australia, in English and other languages. Once digitized, anyone can "check out" a digital copy of a book and read it online.

The SALIS Collection holds more than 700 books and government documents, with hundreds more in the pipeline awaiting digitization. We need your support in order to keep this vitally important project going! Read more about the Collection and how you can help!
