T wo new resources on the trans-disciplinary field of public health systems and services research (PHSSR) are available on the National Library of Medicine® (NLM) Health Services Research and Public Health Information Programs Web page.

The first resource is an overview of the development of PHSSR. PHSSR examines public health-related issues from a systems perspective. State, local, and federal governmental public health agencies as well as private and nonprofit agencies all contribute to this field of study. PHSSR evolved as scholars and practitioners used the methods and tools of health services research to answer questions regarding the organization, financing, delivery and impact of public health activities.

The second resource is a Webliography containing over 300 references to the significant PHSSR literature. It is divided into four subject areas:

References appear in more than one subject area. There are PubMed® links within the references when possible.

These resources were created by the University of Kentucky Center for Public Health Systems and Services Research and funded by NLM.
