Jon Cohen AIDS Research Collection

Description

Noted science writer Jon Cohen has donated to the University of Michigan this collection of AIDS-related material he amassed while writing the book, Shots in the Dark: The Wayward Search for an AIDS Vaccine. Largely focused on AIDS vaccine research, the collection spans 20 years and contains conference materials, meeting agendas and minutes, promotional materials, scientific reports and numerous government materials among other forms of documentation not found elsewhere in digital form. With a generous grant from the John D. Evans Foundation and support from the University of Michigan School of Information, the University of Michigan Library and School of Information have organized and digitized the collection, creating this online, publicly accessible resource for research.

Journal articles were not digitized but users can link dynamically to the articles if their library subscribes to the journal. Users should also be aware that due to copyright restrictions, not all items listed in the finding aid will be available online. To see these materials, contact the Special Collections Library.
