The Animal Science collection supports the teaching, research and service activities of the entire university community. Its primary audience is the faculty, staff, and students of the Animal Science department in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources within the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources. The collection’s primary focus is support for the undergraduate and graduate curricula for Animal Science. Specific and transient research needs of Animal Science faculty and graduate students are supplemented through Interlibrary Loan.
The focus of the Animal Science collection is diverse in nature as it encompasses disciplines that are well established within colleges and departments in the university structure. The collection is multifaceted and is distributed widely to support curriculum and research needs within subject areas including: ruminant nutrition, non-ruminant nutrition, physiology, breeding and genetics, meat science, nutrient and waste management, animal health, and animal production systems. Materials are not purchased for the general public though they may benefit from the collection for their information needs.
