Veterinary Specialty Boards Reading Lists Libraries Template 2.0

This template is for libraries to connect users to local copies of materials on reading lists. This is a convenience copy only. Candidates are responsible for ensuring they use the latest specialty board-provided reading list.

About the Project

This project’s goal is to compile and verify recommended reading lists for the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Recognized Specialty Veterinary Organizations (RSVOs) examinations.  This information will help veterinary residents locate these materials and help librarians develop collections.

This master template is licensed under creative commons, non-commercial use, share-alike, adaptations allowed. You can copy them into LibGuides 2 at your institution and modify them to include your local holdings. If you copy it to your institution's LibGuides presence, use a service like http://changedetection.com or email project administrators to monitor the pages for updates.

This project began in 2009 with Vicki F. Croft at Washington State University and Heather K. Moberly at Oklahoma State University and since has included contributions from many people.

The Veterinary Information Resource Committee, Veterinary Medical Libraries Section, Medical Library Association, is responsible for maintaining and updating this master template.
