Resources for Equine Science and Animal Welfare students

  • Students on the Equine Science (BSc and Foundation) and Animal Welfare (Foundation) courses have library resources at both Abingdon & Witney College (Witney campus) and Oxford Brookes University (Headington campus).

    Oxford Brookes University Library

    Multiple copies of key equine textbooks are available from Headington Library (shelfmarks 636.1 ....) and several are also available as E-books. A keyword search by "equine" or "horse" on the Brookes LibrarySearch system will give you an idea of some of these. Headington Library has a limited collection of books on small animals and welfare.

    Key electronic resources from Brookes Library
