BSAVA celebrate the BSAVA Library’s fifth anniversary

2 May 2023

The BSAVA are celebrating the fifth anniversary of the BSAVA Library. The library was established in 2018, in anticipation of growing demand for digital veterinary content.

Since its launch, the site has expanded with the addition of features such as the video and webinar libraries, while further development is planned in the coming years. Currently, the library brings together more than 9,000 BSAVA resources, including manual chapters, Companion articles, clinical videos, congress lectures, webinars, formulary entries, client information leaflets, scientific documents, and much more.

The BSAVA Library is used by members, practices, and universities around the world. The site has seen over 430,000 logins, more than 7.7 million content views, and nearly one million full text downloads.

To mark the anniversary, the BSAVA publishing team has created a free collection of some of the most-accessed resources, illustrating topics which are at the forefront of veterinary medicine. The collection is open to all during the month of May. You can access the collection here:

Ian Mellor, Head of Publishing said: “It has been a labour of love over the past five years, and the development time before then, to find new ways to present and provide access to the wide range of content that BSAVA produces.  We’d love to encourage feedback about the library from the veterinary profession – please let us know what you like, what you don’t like so much, and what could be added that would really help you in your practice – this will help us to shape our digital offering over the next few years”.
