Serials Solutions® Summon® service has reached agreement to index a wealth of specialized reports, fact sheets, publications, data sources and other content from the Pew Research Center and two diverse United Nations agencies – the Geneva-based International Labour Organization and UNAIDS, the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS.

The Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan fact tank that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. The center conducts public opinion polling, demographic studies, media content analysis and other empirical social science research.

Serials Solutions will index the Pew Research Center publications collection for inclusion in the Summon service.

The Summon service will include almost all ILO resources, including valuable database content, papers, reports, magazines, journals, audio-visual material and fact sheets.

UNAIDS, the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS, is an innovative United Nations partnership that produces a range of authoritative resources including HIV AIDS progress reports, country reports, fact sheets, slides, and books used by researchers worldwide.
