Collection Description

The collection of the Steven W. Atwood Library emphasizes small animal medicine and surgery while the collection of the Jean Austin duPont Library emphasizes materials relating to large animals. Older print material is housed in LIBRA, Penn Libraries Research Annex. All Penn Libraries operate as a unit and share resources.

Special Collections

The Fairman Rogers collection of books on horses and their relationship to engineering, industry, veterinary medicine, and science was moved from the duPont Library at New Bolton Center to the Rare Books and Manuscript Library, and digitized through a grant from the Laurie Landeau Foundation.


Doing Research

Please see the veterinary library homepage for links to databases, journals, books, and online guides relevant to veterinary medicine. Librarians are available to help in identifying sources, developing search strategies, managing your results and devising an informaation workflow.
