cover artThe 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, two-page format. the thirty fact sheets 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.

Authored by recognized experts in the fields of alcohol and other drug prevention, education, inter­vention, treatment, and research, Clearing­house fact sheets were allowed to be reproduced in quantity without prior approval if reproduced in their entirety and used solely for non-profit and educational purposes. 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:
