Did you know that NARIC is a library with a collection that grows by more than 300 publications and products per month? While NIDILRR-funded research makes up the core of our collection, we are constantly adding material from across the research community. Our librarians scour the major journals and publishers in the field to find new articles, books, and consumer publications covering the breadth of disability and rehabilitation research across the life span. Since 2015, the collection has included research published in languages other than English. Every publication is indexed in our REHABDATA database. You can explore the database, learn how to access full text documents, and sign up for our monthly literature awareness service to see what we've added recently.
