Health and Retirement Study

The University of Michigan Health and Retirement Study (HRS) is sponsored by the National Institute on Aging and the Social Security Administration. It is a longitudinal study that surveys thousands of Americans over the age of 50 every two years. It began in 1992. It looks in-depth at health, health insurance, work, retirement, income, wealth, family charateristics, and intergenerational transfers through extensive interviews with survey participants. Data products are freely available online to registered users.

*Reference Manager Users**Please Note*

In the past, the Public Health Library has offered hands-on trainings on
the basics of using Reference Manager (RefMan). It appears that several
former RefMan users at CDPH have recently switched to EndNote. Because
RefMan use at CDPH is going down, the Public Health Library has decided
to stop offering regularly scheduled RefMan trainings. If you are a RefMan
user and want any help or advice, please feel free to contact us at any

Reference Manager help and tutorials, including a downloadable exercise
set from the Public Health Library, are available online.

Undergraduates: Want more than a grade for that research you are doing?

Research projects you completed this summer, this fall, and next spring may be eligible for the 2013 Library Prize for Undergraduate Research. This award recognizes excellence in undergraduate research projects that incorporate the use of Library collections and that demonstrate sophisticated information literacy skills on the part of the undergraduate researcher. Lower-division and upper-division student submissions are judged separately and the committee tries each year to award students in both categories.

Samuel Redman, an historian at the Regional Oral History Office and a current Library Prize Committee member, has written a great blog post about the prize. If you are curious about past winners, the most recent papers can be found at eScholarship. Application information and instructions are available at the Library Prize web site. The application deadline is April 19, 2013, 5:00pm.
