DescriptionThis research chronicles the current state of academic veterinary libraries and documents recent changes across the international academic veterinary library community. Specifically, on an annual basis, it gathers evidence from veterinary colleague libraries to document any closing and merging of academic veterinary libraries, to compile all evidence and descriptive information concerning changes in space, collections, reporting relationships and librarian assignments. Beginning in 2016, a survey is sent to each academic veterinary library accredited, approved or conditionally approved by the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council or the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education. Aggregated survey results will be published and made available through the Texas A&M institutional repository. The intent is to make longitudinal data available for use in benchmarking and trend analysis.
