Support the SALIS Collection on Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2017!
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 1500 titles vital to the field of addiction and substance use disorders.

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!

We're launching our first fundraiser this month, with a special focus on Giving Tuesday, an annual, international event celebrating charitable giving, happening on Tuesday, November 28th.

To help us reach our goal of $6000 – 200 books digitized – the SALIS Executive Board is offering to match the first $1000 donated on that day! Make your donation early on November 28th and watch it double, thanks to our generous board members!

Download our flyer with more information about the fundraiser, and watch this space and your email inboxes for updates and a link to our fundraising website as we get closer to November 28th!
