University Libraries Purchase AnimalScience.com Database for Veterinary Medicine

After consulting with library users in the College of Veterinary Medicine, the Veterinary Library has chosen to replace the VetCD and BeastCD veterinary literature indexes with the product AnimalScience.com, from CABI Publishing. AnimalScience.com searches essentially the same information set as VetCD + BeastCD, but is a more user-friendly search environment for the average user. A significant additional advantage is that our AnimalScience.com license will allow four simultaneous users from U of M, hopefully preventing the service lockouts we frequently experienced with VetCD (which only allowed us one user at a time).

Try AnimalScience.com and let us know what you think! Email questions and comments about AnimalScience.com to Kevin Messner at messn006@umn.edu.
