Dublin Core




Early publications by the Yale and Rutgers Center of Alcohol Studies document the evolving field of alcohol studies.


The Yale and Rutgers Centers of Alcohol Studies considered the dissemination of literature on alcohol and alcoholism as one of the five pillars of alcohol studies. A sample of the early publications provides a glimpse into the wealth and diversity of resources, such as series of pamphlets, memoirs, posters, and lay supplements, illustrate the inclusive target audiences of these publications.
This collection features seminal works published by CAS or collected by the CAS library and unavailable elsewhere (about 350 pdf files and 350 images) including gray literature, such as pamphlets, fact sheets, lay supplements, and material related to publication (bibliographies, and flyers). Note: Following previous decisions, content from the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs will be omitted, since the journal is fully digitized and the back files are available for subscribers as full text.
