Library use, information searching, databases

It is an important task of the library to lay the foundations of and enhance the computer and information ’literacy’ of students, academic staff and veterinarians; to disseminate the new developments in the field of veterinary information; and to transfer knowledge and develop skills related to veterinary literature and information. In order to meet these goals we provide resources, publish aids, and offer several types of curricular and extra-curricular courses on different levels.

The library provides support for students writing their theses and staff or veterinarians preparing publications.
