Support the SALIS Collection!
SALIS Collection logo

The SALIS Collection, a digital lending library of books in the alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) field, has grown to over 2000 titles vital to the field of addiction and substance use disorders. (Read more about this project here!)

Thanks to the dedication of SALIS members and supporters, anyone in the world can now "check out" a digital copy of a book from the SALIS Collection and read it for free online. Students, researchers, clinicians, friends/family members, people in recovery: these books are vital to them all!

But there are so many more items we want to add to the collection, and YOU CAN HELP! A donation of $30 covers the cost of scanning one book for the collection.

Make your donation to support this project today via PayPal (or find information on how to mail us a check here)!
