About Primate Info Net

Primate Info Net (PIN) is maintained by Lawrence Jacobsen Library staff at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center (WNPRC), University of Wisconsin-Madison. Jacobsen Library programs are and have been supported by grant numbers RR000167 and RR015311, National Primate Research Centers Program, Office of Research Infrastructure Programs and previously the National Center for Research Resources, the National Institutes of Health.

Questions, comments or suggestions of additional content for PIN can be sent through our PIN Contact Form.

Primate Info Net is designed to cover the broad field of primatology, providing original content and links to resources about nonhuman primates in research, education and conservation. Through email lists and other resources, PIN also supports an informal "primate information network" comprised of thousands of individuals around the world working with nonhuman primates in a variety of roles.

PIN began in 1995 as a Gopher site and transitioned to a World Wide Web site in 1996. The site now links to over 7900 pages, receiving over 18.6 million web hits in 2008. Over the years, dozens of individuals have contributed their time and expertise to the development of PIN, and we would like to thank them:
