CAMH Library & Archives Centre for Addiction
and Mental Health

Mission

The services and resources of the CAMH Library support and enhance CAMH's multidisciplinary research and clinical programs, its educational mandate and its health promotion initiatives.  As an important contributor to CAMH's provincial role, the Library provides services to professional communities and the public of Ontario. Library staff take an active role in local, national and international resource and information sharing initiatives.

To support its mission, the CAMH Library holds comprehensive collections in mental health, gambling and alcohol, tobacco and other drugs (ATOD), building upon the collections of:

  • the former Addiction Research Foundation (ARF) Library,
  • the Farrar Library of the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry, and 
  • the Queen Street Mental Health Centre, Health Sciences Library.
     
The collections consist of books, journals, reprints, research reports, government documents and videos in both print and electric format. Scope is international and historical in core areas. Ontario and other Canadian materials including laws and government and NGO reports are also collected. Special and Historical collections​ include a historical temperance collection. 

The Library is expanding its electronic resource holdings while continuing to maintain and build on print resources.
