Primate Info Net (PIN), pioneered by Larry Jacobsen, Ray Hamel and Paul DuBois, was historically maintained by the Lawrence Jacobsen Library staff at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center (WNPRC).  The Lawrence Jacobsen Library programs were supported by grant numbers RR000167 and RR015311 of the National Primate Research Centers Program in the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs, and by the National Center for Research Resources of the National Institutes of Health. PIN programming is currently supported by ORIP grant number P51OD011106 and is principally maintained by Graham L Banes and Jordana Lenon.

PIN began in 1995 as a Gopher site and transitioned to a World Wide Web site in 1996. In the 2000s, it grew to comprise more than 8,000 pages — many of which have now been condensed or are hosted elsewhere. At its peak, PIN received more than 18.6 million hits annually.
