The PrimateLit database provides bibliographic access to the scientific literature on nonhuman primates for the research and educational communities. Coverage of the database spans 1940 to present and includes all publication categories (articles, books, abstracts, technical reports, dissertations, book chapters, etc.) and many subject areas (behavior, colony management, ecology, reproduction, field studies, disease models, veterinary science, psychology, physiology, pharmacology, evolution, taxonomy, developmental and molecular biology, genetics and zoogeography). Current Primate References (CPR) is a subset of PrimateLit offering a broad subject approach to recently indexed citations. This electronic version of CPR replaces the former print publication of the same name. It covers the current six months of the primatological literature. CPR enables users to keep abreast of newly published articles and books in their areas of interest. Note that items found in CPR will also be found in a search of the whole database. Books Received includes review copies of books, government documents, pamphlets and other printed material sent for announcement on the email discussion forum Primate-Science. These items are also listed on Primate Info Net (PIN) and indexed in PrimateLit. For information on our review copy policy, link here. PrimateLit is supported by National Center for Research Resources, National Institutes of Health, Grant RR15311, "Coordinated Information Services to Support Primate Research." It is a collaborative project of the Wisconsin and Washington Primate Research Centers (NCRR Grants RR00167 and RR00166). With technical support from the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Library Technology Group, the Wisconsin Primate Research Center provides the overall coordination of the project. Literature acquisition, analysis, and indexing are carried out by the Primate Information Center at the Washington National Primate Research Center, University of Washington.
