NADE members may borrow books from the NADE library.


The library owns copies of most of the important volumes written in the field of document examination, as well as books related to the legal system, forensic sciences in general, and expert witness issues. There is also a large collection of articles from the many forensic science journals, as well as past issues of the NADE Journal.

The library acquires its holdings through a purchasing program and through generous donations from members and other persons interested in document examination.


 The NADE Librarian is Joan Winkelman.
