The Library of the Vetsuisse Faculty has a commitment to the project of long-term archiving as a contact partner in the field of veterinary medicine. In addition we are in the process of building up a historical collection on veterinary medicine. These documents mostly originate from donations, from estates of emeritus professors and from former institute libraries.

The collection features documents from the 20th century onwards, including old and rare prints as well as volumes of images and plates with historical illustrations.


The historical collection can be viewed on site. Please contact us beforehand services[at]

Please order the documents via the Rechercheportal.
