Among the first projects that eventually coalesced into the Center of Alcohol Studies was, quite literally, an information service: the Classified Abstract Archive of the Alcohol Literature, which established a cohesive history for a long-scattered field and provided a foundation for the groundbreaking work to come.
The Information Services division is proud to carry on that mission today. Based on the third floor of Smithers Hall on Busch Campus (Piscataway, NJ), the Center of Alcohol Studies Library offers one of the world's largest and most comprehensive collections of English-language documents on the biomedical and social aspects of alcohol use and abuse, as well as material on other drugs from marijuana to tobacco to caffeine and more.
In addition to supporting research and education at the Center, the Library produces scholarship on the intersection of addiction and information science and actively participates in a number of library organizations. As part of the Rutgers University Libraries system, the Center of Alcohol Studies Library is committed to serving both the Rutgers community and the general public.
