Fact Sheets Series

The New Jersey Alcohol/Drugs Resource Center and Clearinghouse Fact Sheet Series, published at the Center of Alcohol Studies beginning in 1988, provided useful information on a variety of alcohol and drugs in a concise, one-page format. It served institutions of higher education, state agencies, communities, and school districts throughout the state of New Jersey by providing technical assistance, training, and resources in alcohol and other drug abuse education and prevention.

The authors were recruited from the prominent scholars and educators in the field. Guidelines to authors suggested texts of 1000 to 1500 words in length and simple language tailored to the broadest audiences.

More information about the Center of Alcohol Studies and the development of New Jersey Alcohol/Drug Resource Center and Clearinghouse is available from Catherine Weglarz's article Rutgers Center of Alcohol Studies Library: A Brief History, published in The Journal of the Rutgers University Libraries. An excerpt is available below:

The Library and the Center's Division of Education and Training worked together with the State of New Jersey's Department of Higher Educationto design the New Jersey Alcohol/Drug Resource Center and Clearinghouse [...] Two Clearinghouse goals are to develop core collections of alcohol/drug education, treatment,and prevention materials and to disseminate information on those topics to residents of the State of New Jersey.

Later on the updated fact sheets were available online too.
