The Flower-Sprecher Veterinary Library holds an internationally recognized collection of materials on veterinary medicine and animal culture. Related strengths include immunology, microbiology, parasitology, pharmacology, physiology and human medicine. These resources are complemented by various biomedical electronic information and current-awareness services, and the audio-visual collection contains slide sets, videos and audio recordings.

The College of Veterinary Medicine complex is locked on weekends and after 5:00 pm on weekdays. Only members of the College of Veterinary Medicine community can access the building after-hours.

If you’re not a member of the College of Veterinary Medicine community, then you must request after-hours access in advance.  See the vet library website for more information.
