The Foundation Resource Centre

One of the most important actions you can take when you are supporting a love one who has been diagnosed with an eating disorder is to educate yourself. The more educated and informed you are about the illness, the easier it will be for you to cope, understand and communicate with your love one. Because of the importance of education, the Foundation has developed an extensive library of books, brochures & DVDs available for public use. We encourage the public to drop by the Foundation to take advantage of these free loaner materials. All materials are available on a loaner basis for 6 weeks.

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.
