Formatted Abstract/Summary
ABSTRACT: In the United States, there are currently 28 schools of veterinary medicine; 10 were established since 1973. Forty-one veterinary schools are no longer in existence. Only a handful of veterinary schools have libraries that contain the early publications and paper ephemera relating to veterinary medicine in the U.S. Many types of literature have been lost forever. This presentation will examine the several types of literature that has been lost over time. It will illustrate the need to locate, catalogue and preserve what still exists.
