In 1990,the Arkansas Spinal Cord Commission (ASCC) developed a resource center on spinal cord injury with the cooperation of the Paralyzed Veterans of America Spinal Cord Injury Education and Training Foundation. The resource center provides information and educational resources about spinal cord injuries and the effects they have on the people who live with them to ASCC clients, health care providers, and the general public.
Located in the Little Rock office, the resource center now contains over 1500 resources including books, magazines, videos, catalogs, and articles, all of which can be borrowed free of charge. In addition, the resource library distributes fact sheets on over 30 different SCI related subjects.
