Support the SALIS Collection!
SALIS Collection logo

With the current opioid crisis, as well as issues related to cannabis medicalization and legalization, supporting the information needs of researchers, clinicians, students, and the general public on these subjects and others has never been more important.

The SALIS Collection's goal is to provide a digital copy of every book on alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs stored in a single location for everyone around the world to access. The collection currently features over 2500 titles vital to the field of addiction and substance use disorders, but we still have a long way to go! (Read more about this project here!)

Every $30 you donate adds one more book to our collection! How many books will you add?
