NIDA Library Shuts Down

A sad story during National Library Week:

Source: JoinTogether.org News Summary, 4/4/2007
The National Institute on Drug Abuse <http://www.nida.nih.gov/&gt; (NIDA) library, which contained up to 12,000 journal volumes and 8,000 books, has been shut down due to budget cuts, SALIS News reported in its Winter 2007 issue.

The library primarily served NIDA’s 400-person staff but also archived many historic documents, including every research article published by program staff since the original Addiction Research Center (ARC) was founded in Lexington, Ky., in 1935, and the minutes of every Committee on Problems of Drug Dependence meeting held since 1929.
