    The Clearinghouse on Abuse and Neglect of the Elderly (CANE), located at the University of Delaware Center for Community Research and Service, is the nation's largest computerized catalog of elder abuse literature. With over 6,000 entries, you can search CANE's database to obtain references pertaining to many aspects of elder abuse and neglect, and the conditions that impact elder mistreatment.

    The CANE database may be searched to obtain citations and brief summaries of peer-reviewed journal articles, as well as books, agency reports, hearing transcripts, videos, memoranda of understanding (MOU), and online resources addressing the abuse and neglect, self-neglect, and financial exploitation of elders. (To search for additional training materials, visit the NCEA Training Library for Adult Protective Services and Elder Abuse.)

    The database is updated as we catalog new acquisitions.
