The Steven W. Atwood Library and its branch, the Jean Austin duPont Library at New Bolton Center, were established to serve the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine's clinicians, faculty, staff and students, in support of its clinical, teaching and research programs. The combined collections comprise approximately 35,000 volumes of journals and books. The collection at New Bolton comprises approximately 5,300 volumes of journals and books.
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.
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.
