Additional Information

The collection is primarily of use to those studying veterinary medicine specifically and the biological sciences more generally. Its methods of peer-reviewed collation will also be of interest to those who work and study in the areas of data and asset management and digital librarianship.

The collection is easy to access, divided into clear subject areas and well-labelled, which makes it accessible to those teaching and studying at GCSE level and beyond. The four online revision lectures provide further material that enhances the collection's assets. Students, teachers and researchers can also contribute to the project by requesting to add and review material.
