The veterinary library was founded on September 21, 1897, with a gift from Roswell P. Flower, former governor of New York. Originally named the Roswell P. Flower Library, it eventually was re-named the Flower-Sprecher Veterinary Library in 1992 to recognize Dr. and Mrs. Isidor I. Sprecher for their generous support of the College. The Library’s holdings represent an internationally recognized selection of materials in veterinary medicine as well as publications in the biomedical sciences. These resources support the College’s undergraduate, graduate, clinical, and research programs.
Additional library services include instruction, outreach, information searching, interlibrary loan, and document delivery.
