Hunting for the latest on contraceptive research? Need to know how urbanization has affected health in poor nations? Plunge into POPLINE, an eclectic bibliography on population and reproductive health from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Geared for policy-makers and health care workers, the more than 290,000 abstracts focus on important topics for developing countries, such as demography, family-planning technologies and policies, sexually transmitted diseases, and the impact of human population growth on ecosystems. POPLINE's entries are updated twice monthly and hail from technical papers and books, dissertations, newspaper articles, government reports, court records, and other sources. Although the site sells full-text copies of most documents, researchers in developing countries can obtain them for free.
