The National Library of Medicine (NLM) acquires and maintains an
extensive collection of materials in veterinary research and the
veterinary basic and clinical sciences. The collection emphasizes
the areas most closely related to human health and health research
including comparative medicine, zoonoses, laboratory animal medicine,
and primatology. Also housed at NLM is one of the nation's largest
medical history collections, including a historical prints and
photographs collection, which contains many items dealing with
veterinary medicine.


MEDLARS (Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System), the
Library's computer-based system, retrieves references to journal
articles published after 1965, books, and audiovisuals in the health
sciences. It is also used for the compilation of biomedical
bibliographies such as Index Medicus_. Listed below are MEDLARS
databases of particular interest to veterinarians. Most medical and
science libraries have access to these databases and provide search


(MEDLARS Online) retrieves references, many with abstracts, to
articles and letters in over 3,700 journals (including 66 in
veterinary medicine) published in the U.S. and abroad.


(Cancer Literature), sponsored by the National Cancer Institute
contains references dealing with various aspects of cancer in humans
and animals. Included are journal articles, books, theses,
government reports, and meeting abstracts.


(Audiovisuals Online) contains citations to audiovisual materials
cataloged by NLM; motion pictures, videocassettes, slides, and
filmstrips. Among items of special interest to veterinarians are those
dealing with laboratory animals and zoonoses.


(Toxicology Information Online) covers the toxicologic,
pharmacologic, biochemical, physiologic, and environmental effects of
drugs and other chemicals on humans and animals.

The National Library of Medicine has developed Grateful Med, a
microcomputer-based software package, as an interface for
professionals to access NLM's databases directly. No knowledge of a
formal search language is required. Information about Grateful Med
may be obtained from:

MEDLARS Management Section


NLM publishes Current Bibliographies in Medicine (CBM) which may be
purchased individually or as a subscription from the Government
Printing Office. These bibliographies cover a wide variety of topics
including some that are of particular interest to veterinarians,
e.g., Transmissible Subacute Spongiform Encephalopathies:
Transmission Between Animals and Man (CBM 91-5), Pain, Anesthesia,
and Analgesia in Common Laboratory Animals (CBM 91-9), Laboratory
Animal Welfare (CBM 93-1 and CBM 92-2), Seafood Safety (CBM 92-7). A
list of available CBM's appears each month in Index Medicus.
