Library Policy

The Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse (SSRC) library includes resources and research relevant to family self-sufficiency and related topics from various subscription services; found on national, State or local organizations’ Web sites; collected at national conferences; or published by the Federal government. All resources and research in the collection have been reviewed for relevancy and quality, and items deemed appropriate for inclusion in the SSRC are abstracted, catalogued, and tagged with keywords to assist with automated searching and retrieval. To view the criteria guiding the identification, selection, and review of materials for the SSRC Library, please click here.

The SSRC Library is an ongoing work in progress and will grow each month as research and resources are added. The SSRC encourages all users to help the SSRC library grow by submitting research and resources for inclusion. If you know of or have a resource that you think would be a good addition to the SSRC Library, click here to Submit a Resource. The SSRC Library staff will review all submitted resources and research for relevancy and quality. If deemed appropriate for inclusion, the resources and research will be made available to SSRC users through the Library.
