This guide will support Veterinary Technology students with animal anatomy resources, recommended apps, and more!

Getting Started with Books and Reference Materials

Books & eBooks Reference materials
  • Books can be useful for getting a topic overview or they can delve very deep on just one aspect of a topic, exploring it fully and providing a deep understanding.             
  • These are some of the longest forms of research, and you may find that you only need a specific chapter or section of a book, rather than the whole thing.
  •  Reference materials provide short, fact oriented description of the topic.         
  • They are considered one of the most authoritative sources.
