I’m duplicating this post from the general library blog because of the importance of the subject to the behavioral sciences. I want the information to get out to as many people as possible.
The library had offered access to the Child Abuse, Child Welfare and Adoption Database, but that product is being discontinued. In its place, we have added a link to the Child Welfare Information Gateway. From the announcement from NISC:
The two clearinghouses that compiled the data for the Child Abuse, Child Welfare & Adoption Database, National Clearinghouse on Child Abuse and Neglect Information and the National Adoption Information Clearinghouse were consolidated into the Child Welfare Information Gateway. The Child Welfare Information Gateway is managed by ICF International and is a service of the Children’s Bureau within the Administration for Children and Families of the Department of Health and Human Services. The Gateway provides access to resources including print and electronic publications, websites, databases and more covering topics related to child safety, welfare and adoption.
