The SALIS Collection Tops 1000 Documents!

The SALIS Collection, a partnership between SALIS and the Internet Archive, features books and other documents of significance to the ATOD field from anyrelevant 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 currently holds over 1000 books and government digital 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!
