Congratulations to Trenton and Kate on new appointments!

Consolidation of the veterinary and health sciences historical collections of the MU Libraries is underway. The collections will be curated by a librarian with an outstanding reputation for scholarship in the history of veterinary medicine.

The appointment is the culmination of forty-two years of veterinary librarianship as Head of the veterinary library. Trenton is well-known for his scholarship in veterinary history and his long-term, visionary leadership in the field of veterinary librarianship at the national and international levels.

In his new role, Trenton Boyd will highlight publications of historical interest related to veterinary and medical sciences housed in the MU Libraries, bringing visibility and scholarship to the veterinary and health sciences historical collection. Trenton will be relocating to the Health Sciences Library to be in close proximity to the collections. Trenton’s duties will include curating the archives of the College of Veterinary Medicine, and he will continue to be available for any historical questions you may have.
