History of CAS Library


Rutgers Center of Alcohol Studies Library: A Brief History by Catherine Weglarz, former Rutgers CAS Librarian

ALCOHOL STUDIES requires a multidisciplinary approach to all aspects of beverage alcohol use and abuse, including alcoholism. Rutgers Center of Alcohol Studies maintains a unique position in our society's efforts to understand this complex field. The Center's mission has always been to generate significant research findings on alcohol, alcoholics, and alcoholism, and to provide education, service, and information dissemination to the world on those topics. In fact, the development of alcohol studies as a specific discipline can be traced almost in parallel to the growth and development of the Center of Alcohol Studies.
