As a member of the life committees I’m delighted to introduce you to a new service to members. They have developed a virtual library of life insurance papers. The library (http://www.actuaries.org/index.cfm?DSP=LIFE&ACT=LIBRARY&LANG=EN) currently contains over 40 papers, which have appeared in past issues of the ASTIN Bulletin – The Journal of the IAA and Insurance: Mathematics and Economics. Papers from past Life Section colloquia will also be added to the library. The library provides the following information for each paper: title, author, source, year of publication and abstract. Additionally, we have included a filter option which allow viewers to limit the display to various categories. The library also includes a form allowing members to suggest papers to be added to the library. A member of the Life Section Committee has been appointed to review potential submissions for inclusion in the library. Please make sure that you are logged into the IAA Website as a member in order for your access rights to be authenticated.
