We are excited to announce a new guide to help you locate useful library resources!
The IACUC and Animal Welfare Resources Guide supports Mount Sinai's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) and researchers with information resources about conducting, facilitating and overseeing the use of animals in research. This guide introduces books available through the library on animal research administration and care relevant to IACUC members and applicants.
If you are a researcher, trainee or staff member involved or learning about the use of animals in research, this guide also walks you through a step by step process of how to conduct an effective search of the literature for alternatives.
This guide links to the video recording from our recent workshop on how to conduct an alternatives literature search - "Searching and Applying Literature to Improve Animal Welfare and Fulfill IACUC Requirements" which is also on our YouTube channel along with other workshops relevant to the research community.
We hope this guide is useful to IACUC members, researchers and anyone who is interested in laboratory animal medicine.
This new addition comes as we continue our efforts to hear and amplify your information needs by delivering resources that are accessible to all.
To learn more about the guide, please visit the IACUC and Animal Welfare Resources guide.
