August Focus: Physiological Effects

The Newswire is back after a brief hiatus. As can be seen in the articles and links below, our efforts have been focused on launching exciting new technologies to help our clients access current and reliable resources.

Our focus for August is on the physiological effects of substance abuse. Below is a selection of the resources available from the PIC and on the Web that address this broad topic. Please feel free to contact the PIC for further information on these or other items available for loan through the library.
