PDF (HRB National Drugs Library collection policy)

The HRB National Drugs Library supports those working to develop the knowledge base around drug, alcohol and tobacco use in Ireland. We aim to enable evidence-informed decision making in research, policy and practice by providing relevant and appropriate library and information resources and services.

Our online repository collection of alcohol and other drug research is at the core of service delivery.  It enables us to provide quick and easy access to material, and to deliver tailored and targeted resources (such as factsheets and online key Irish data and practitioner pages). We include material including:

  • publications, such as articles, books, book chapters, conference proceedings, factsheets, newsletters, reports and theses.
  • news items, found daily from national news sources.
  • debates from the Oireachtas (Irish Parliament)
  • audio and visual resources (such as podcasts)
  • datasets (statistics)
  • upcoming events (such as conferences and workshops)

This collection policy provides information on the resources we include in our collection.
