A keyword search "genetics and alcoholism" in the TCC Library catalog turns up a few titles.  Northeast Campus Library has a book, Brain in Balance: understanding the genetics and neurochemistry behind addiction and sobriety.  See the link to the book.

Also, you can try searching the library catalog  for the subjects of "alcoholism" and "alcoholism-treatment"--some books on these broader terms may yield specific information about genetic influences on alcoholism.

You can search a general database like Ebscohost's Academic Search Premier for articles:

  • using some keyword combinations such as "alcoholism and genetics"; or "genetic factors";
  • once you get a list of results, take a look at the listed subject headings for additional precise search terms you can try. 
  • Academic Search Premier allows you to limit your results to full-text articles only and/or source of articles, such as scholarly (peer reviewed) journals only.

Here is a link to one example of the type of articles you can find in Academic Search Premier:

"Genetic Research: Who is at risk for Alcoholism?"

If you are off campus, you will need to log in to your MyTCC  account to access the TCC Library's online resources.
