The ACICR Library is a special collection of injury prevention and control literature housing over 2000 items including an abundance of gray literature, books, videos, reports, academic journals, newsletters, pamphlets and more. The Library addresses ACICR's goal to provide information, networking and clearinghouse services to injury prevention and control stakeholders in Alberta.
The resource collection includes a section on injury prevention and control theory and practice including evaluation, social marketing, community development, collaboration and strategic planning. It also houses a section on injury-specific topics with information on programs, initiatives, prevention information, data, risk factors and promising practices.
