vsglasgow-logos

The University of Glasgow Library is pleased to announce that we now subscribe to Vetstream, the online clinical reference resource for the treatment of cats, dogs, horses and rabbits.

As a vet student, Vetstream will help you to locate detailed information to complement your lecture material without the need to search a variety of resources, ensuring the most efficient use of your research time. The comprehensive content of over 19,000 text and media sources is provided by over 900 of the world’s leading veterinarians and updated weekly, so you can be confident in the quality and accuracy of the content.

Available 24/7 on any internet enabled device, Vetstream offers point of care clinical information, supported by thousands of interactive images, videos and illustrations, including x-rays, MRI scans and ultrasound images. Categorized into four encyclopedic services: Felis, Canis, Equis and Lapis, the content is cross-linked to allow comparative searching across each subject area, with direct links to abstracts and primary resources on PubMed and VetMed for an evidence-based approach.

You can access Vetstream via the A-Z list of Databases, or by using the search facility on the library homepage, and notifications of updates are available via RSS and Twitter feeds. Updates are also posted in the James Herriot Library, so keep an eye out on the noticeboards. If you have any comments or questions about Vetstream, or the James Herriot Library in general, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0141 330 5708, or email vetlib@lib.gla.ac.uk.
