Visit the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Library of Veterinary Medicine to see the new artwork installed July 29, 2015. The Library entrance portholes feature reproductions of veterinary student artwork from the Spring 2015 Veterinary Illustration Selective VMC 991-29 taught by Dr. Michael K. Stoskopf, Professor of Aquatics, Wildlife, and Zoologic Medicine and of Molecular and Environmental Toxicology.

This was a one-week studio course taught at the CVM in April 2015 offering veterinary students the opportunity to hone their observation as well as their drawing and illustration skills with live observations at the Teaching Animal Unit and other locations. Students became familiar with basic drawing and pen and ink techniques with an emphasis on rendering from three dimensional objects, living animals, and photographs from books and journals in the Libraries’ collections.

Seven works highlighting a variety of drawing techniques were selected by a jury of faculty and librarian judges.

Bottom Row (Left to Right)

These works and photos of additional drawings by all students in the course will soon appear on the eboard in the Library. Thank you to artists Kelsey Arrufat (Class of 2016), Amanda Flagg (Class of 2017) and Class of 2018: Megan Barbar, Haley Hegedus, and Katelyn McSpadden. The drawings were photographed and prepared for porthole display by Nathan Latil, Media & Design, College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dear CVM Community,

The color printer (A110-1 color) and B&W printer (A110-1) previously housed in the Vet Med Library copier room have been removed and replaced with a single color Follow Me printer. This printer uses the WolfPrint-Color queue and charges $0.25 per page impression. If you send black and white print jobs to this printer, it will still charge you the color printing rate. For black and white printing at the $0.06 per impression rate, send your job to the WolfPrint-BlackandWhite queue which you can pick up at the WolfPrint printer in the main reading room.

If you have questions about using the technology in the Veterinary Medicine Library, please ask for assistance at the Service Desk or call us at 919-513-6218.
Thank you for your patience with these changes.

If you have a balance on your WolfCopy card, please use it by the end of the day Thursday or please contact WolfCopy (attn: Lisa Pittman).

Photocopying of materials up to 8.5×11 (copier room) and 8.5×14 (reading room) can be done on the FollowMe printers using value on your CampusID cards. For larger materials, please use free the overhead scanners in the Library copier room to make a digital copy, and then you can print that to the FollowMe printers.
