PrimateLit is a multi-disciplinary database covering many aspects of non-human primate research, including paleoprimatology, behaviour, learning & perception.  Searches include limits by geographical region (of the primates), taxonomic category, and common name.  A subset of the database, Current Primate Research, contains records added in the past six months and is an excellent current awareness tool.  It supports browsing by one (or several) of 25 disciplines, further optional refinement by selecting from a list of body regions and systems,  plus a date limit selection of the previous 1, 2, 3 or 6 months.

PrimateLit‘s  search features make it an excellent complement to other databases that include references to  research on non-human primates, such as BIOSIS Previews, PsycINFO and PubMed.

Save valuable research time! Online research resources offer an array of tools to help you stay current in your field. In this workshop you’ll learn how to set up email alerts and RSS feeds to:

  • be notified when new articles and dissertations are published on your topic
  • receive Table of Contents for the latest issue of your favorite journal
  • find out when new books in your discipline have arrived in the library
  • be notified of funding and upcoming conference opportunities
  • follow news stories and blogs

No matter what your discipline, you’ll leave the session having set up a number of alerts to stay up-to-date with your research interests!
