Open Alcohol Studies Resources: Home


Welcome to the Center of Alcohol Studies Open Access Resources site.  This virtual toolkit and research guide was created specifically for the needs of participants of CAS-hosted seminars and certificate programs, as well as other guest users. 

Give us your feedback!  This guide is a work-in-progress, so if you have comments, suggestions or find something particularly useful or not, please let us know.  Send us an email at

In-Person Assistance is also available at the library if you need it.  We're located on the 3rd floor of the Brinkley and Adele Smithers Hall on Busch Campus.  Currently, our hours are Monday-Thursday 9 am to 5 pm, Fridays from 9 am to 4:30 pm. 

To get to the library from Smithers (building on the eastern side of Allison Road), follow the signs pointing to the CAS Library.  Go through the two sets of double doors and take the stairs or the elevator to the 3rd floor.  From there, continue to follow the signs.  See the picture below for an example!


About the Library

The CAS Library maintains one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive collections of books, media and other documents pertaining to the biomedical and psychosocial aspects of alcohol use and abuse.  All print resources are available in the library.  While many of the electronic resources on substance abuse provided by Rutgers University Libraries can be only be accessed with a NetID, open-access resources are available to guest users.  


This LibGuide was developed at the Center of Alcohol Studies Library by graduate assistants Will Haggis and Maria Ortiz-Myers  under the supervision of Judit Ward and William Bejarano.
