Faculty Profiles Update

SelectedWorks Profiles Migrating to ‘Georgia Southern Scholars’ this Summer and Fall, 2024

Elsevier is sunsetting all SelectedWorks profiles on December 31, 2024, after which Georgia Southern’s SelectedWorks Profiles and content will no longer be accessible. In response, the GS Libraries are migrating all Georgia Southern affiliated SelectedWorks profiles to the Elsevier Pure platform this summer and fall. The new platform will be called Georgia Southern Scholars. For more information and updates, see here.

If you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to help the Libraries with testing as we prepare for migration, email

Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) Data User Workshop—$100 to admitted attendees!

The Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), begun in 1968, is the world's longest-running multigenerational household panel study. It is used to investigate scientific and policy questions about life course trajectories in health and well-being, intergenerational social and economic mobility, income and wealth inequality, family investments in children, neighborhood effects on opportunity and achievement, and many other topics.

This five-day, in-person only, workshop will orient participants to the content and structure of the core PSID interview, its special topics modules, and its supplemental studies, including the Child Development Supplement (CDS), the Transition into Adulthood Supplement (TAS), and new COVID-19 modules. In addition we will discuss topics including the recently-released genomics data collected from children and primary caregivers in CDS as well as new data files which explain family relationships and demographic characteristics over time.
