Resources and Materials

The Public Library System

The Newfoundland & Labrador Public Libraries have a number of books and videos about eating disorders.

They can be obtained by going to one of the 98 libraries in the province. Larger libraries would have more books on the subject, but even at small libraries it would be possible to obtain books from the other libraries through interlibrary loans.

When you enter the site you will see a "Catalogue Quick Search" box on the top right corner of your screen. From there you can search for a particular book or video.

If you do not know the title of the book or video, you can enter keywords such as Eating Disorders, Anorexia or Bulimia. From there the site will display a list of available books and videos. By clicking on the title of the book/video, it will take you to another page showing you which library has the book/video.

If the list does not contain the name of your local library, that doesn't mean it's not available to you. You can certainly obtain the book/video through the interlibrary loan department. Ask your local librarian for details.
