  • A physical library of books, monographs, audiovisuals and medical journals at CHADD's national office in Lanham, MD. This library is open to the public by appointment only.
  • An online bibliographic database containing cataloged records of books, journal and magazine articles, DVDs, audiotapes and other material on ADHD

Searching the Library Catalog:  Users can do a simple keyword search of the database, or a more focused search by using any combination of keyword, title, author, subject, record type, or publication date. Use the Browse buttons to browse and select indexed terms. Additional searching tips are located on the right sidebar of the search page.

Search the online NRC Library Database:

From the search results, users can see a record's full citation, or the abstracts by using the drop down menu on the top right of the screen. The search results can be viewed in alphabetical order by title, or by publication date in reverse chronological order.

Users can also add the citations to a "cart." The "cart" functions like a clipboard, enabling users to create individualized reference lists that can be emailed or printed.
