Substance Abuse Library and Information Studies: 2016 SALIS e-Proceedings new!
Introduced in 2014, Substance Abuse Library and Information Studies ("SALIS Journal") is the eProceedings for our annual conferences, edited by Judit H. Ward and William Bejarano of Rutgers University. Find the archives for the journal here!
The newest volume, vol. 3, 2016, entitled "A Broader Vision: The Value of Multidisciplinary Lenses," is now available! Based on presentations and posters from our 2016 conference in Denver, CO, the articles address a wide range of topics, including: genetic and environmental influences on substance use, librarians in clinical practice, social media for information dissemination, information literacy, marijuana policy, Hispanic girls and substance use, and reading for recovery.
SALIS Journal is open access: share the link with your friends and colleagues!
