We are pleased to announce that just over 750 serials records of the Royal Veterinary College have just been loaded into SUNCAT. This makes six new Contributing Libraries added so far in 2014. This addition brings the total number of libraries to 98, plus the CONSER database, the ISSN register and the Directory of Open Access Journals.

The Royal Veterinary College is one of the world’s leading specialist veterinary institutions. Founded in 1791, the RVC has a unique heritage of innovation in veterinary and biomedical sciences, clinical practice and education.

The RVC Library is divided between two sites; Camden, located in central London, and Hawkshead, located near Potters Bar, just north of the M25. Both are intended primarily for use by students and staff of The Royal Veterinary College, but external visitors may consult the libraries’ stock by prior arrangement only.

The material at Camden reflects the pre-clinical and taught post-graduate courses there, while the Hawkshead stock covers the clinical and taught post-graduate courses at that site. Most veterinary material is at Hawkshead.
The RVC Library is a member of the M25 Consortium of Higher Education Libraries. Other members who are SUNCAT Contributing Libraries include: Courtauld Institute of Art; London Metropolitan University; Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; Senate House Libraries; The Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust & Genocide; Wellcome Library.
