Please Remember Me explores aging. How do health and social needs change over any person’s life? How do economic development, urbanization, and current health care systems affect our families? If the film opened your eyes to a new field of research, check out the library resources below for further reading or viewing options.
Start with the tab on Aging in the LibGuide for Social Work: Policy for international projects, divisions, and centers. Seniors are a special topic of research, affecting legal issues, psychology, and respect for wisdom. Or if you are looking for data, this LibGuide on Public Health can prepare you for an appointment
with a librarian. Caitlin Mannion is NYU Shanghai’s Social Work Librarian and she maintains a Shanghai-specific LibGuide on Social Work.
You may want to set up email alerts about new articles published in the top journals, listed at the bottom of the LibGuide on Social and Public Policy. Journals are published on different schedules; some once or twice a year, others every month or so. With alerts, you don’t have to remember to visit a website. Instead, you receive the table of contents listing the new releases. Or you can request notices for specific topics or authors most relevant to your research. This is how many professors keep up to date on research in his or her discipline.
