CANCELED: SALIS/AMHL 2020: April 21-24

Due to the increasing public health concerns and the fact that several members have been notified they will not be able to travel, the SALIS and AMHL boards have decided to cancel this year's conference. Other possible options are being discussed including webinars, a meeting later this year, or trying to arrange for the same venue next spring. Stay tuned for updates as we work on future plans!

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?
