SALIS & Internet Archive Digitization ("Digs") Project:
The SALIS Collection
SALIS is partnering with The Internet Archive to create a digital collection of books focused on alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. The Internet Archive is a non-profit digital library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, and more.
SALIS members and Friends of SALIS are contributing books to be scanned into The SALIS Collection within the Internet Archive, as well as donating funds to support this effort. We're selecting books of significance to the field from any relevant discipline -- medicine, psychology, history, sociology -- and more. The Collection has 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 already holds over 2000 books and more every month, including titles like Jellinek's "The Disease Concept of Alcoholism" and "The Biography of Mrs. Mary Mann: The First Lady of Alcoholics Anonymous." Hundreds more are in the pipeline, awaiting digitization by the Internet Archive.
