ADHD Information Library

CHADD's National Resource Center on ADHD maintains the NRC Library as a source for scientific and medical evidence-based information on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and related topics. The library includes:

  • a physical library of books, monographs, audiovisual materials 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, magazine and web articles, DVDs, audiotapes, and other material on ADHD.

To search the Library Catalog: Use the simple keyword search box at the home page, or click on the Advanced Search tab to use any combination of search boxes, including keyword, title, author, subject, record type, publication year, etc.

Selections of resources can be found in the Popular Searches tab, and new items added to the catalog in the past week can be found in the New Resources tab.

The simple keyword search from the catalog home page is passed on to WorldCat and PubMed in the External Search section to find additional resources if they exist. By entering your postal code for a resource found in WorldCat, you can locate a nearby academic library that has the item.

For further information about the NRC Library, please contact the NRC Librarian.

The NRC Library is an Affiliate Member of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine under the auspices of the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
