The Library’s Core Resource Collection is an ”open shelf reserve” collection. Established in 1993 in support of the College’s problem-based curriculum, it continues to enhance the present innovative professional curriculum by making multiple copies of heavily used veterinary medical and related textbooks readily accessible to students for finding answers to learning issues or quickly locating current relevant clinical information.

The Core Resource Collection currently contains over 300 titles, or nearly 1,000 volumes. This averages about 3-4 copies per title and some have more than 10 copies. The Core Collection contains the latest editions. Earlier editions are shelved in the stacks and may be borrowed for extended periods.

This collection is located on shelves under the windows in the reading room.
One copy of each title is also held on reserve behind the Circulation Desk for 3-hour use both in and outside the Library.
