A unique collection of approximately 700 questionnaires, interview schedules and survey instruments used in alcohol research with additional reference to articles that used the survey. Many of the survey instruments are available for document delivery from the Center of Alcohol and Substance Use Studies.
The questionnaires are filed by CARRF numbers which are assigned according to a broad subject classification scheme. Access is provided by a published print inventory and by the in-house database.
Also housed in the library are the correspondence of Dr. Ralph G. Connor, who originated the files and donated them to Rutgers (with joint administration by the National Council on Alcoholism). For documents, please contact the editorial office of JSAD.
