Abstract

Both the demand for, and supply of, mental health information has increased across all sectors. Academic, public and special libraries must locate, evaluate and select materials that support consumer education, academic teaching, interdisciplinary research, and professional credentialing. Selectors must navigate disciplinary barriers to develop materials in an interdisciplinary field that includes not just psychology, psychiatry, social work, sociology, gerontology, medicine, and neurology, but also public policy and law.
