General Information

About

This guide explains the publishing evolution of Veterinary Clinics of North America (VCNA). Although Veterinary Clinics of North America are most often cited as though they are a journal (vol. X, issue Y, pages Z-ZZ), each volume is also cataloged as an individual book. This means to determine whether or not the volume you want to use is checked out, you look that volume up in the MSL Catalog. The following pages provide lists of volumes in each series with links to live searches in the MSL Catalog so you can determine where the item is that you would like to use and whether or not it is checked out.

Texas A&M University Libraries has online subscriptions to the Veterinary Clinics of North America. If you are using a computer on campus you do not need a login/password.
