Longtime CVM Librarian Takes
on New Duties
College of Veterinary Medicine Dean Neil C. Olson recently announced changes in the operation of the College’s Zalk Veterinary Medical Library due to the consolidation of the veterinary and health sciences historical collections under way at the MU Libraries.
The collections will be curated by a librarian with an outstanding reputation for scholarship in the history of veterinary medicine. Trenton Boyd, longtime CVM librarian, has accepted the position as the distinguished librarian curator of medical and veterinary historical collections for the MU Libraries. Boyd is renowned for his scholarship in veterinary history and his long-term, visionary leadership in the field of veterinary librarianship at the national and international levels. The appointment is the culmination of 42 years of veterinary librarianship directing the operations of the veterinary library.
In his new role, he highlights 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. His duties include curating the archives of the College of Veterinary Medicine. However, he continues to be available to respond to questions pertaining to the College’s history.
Kate Anderson has assumed the role of interim head, at the Zalk Veterinary Medical Library, based on her seven years of successful service as specialized services librarian in the Health Sciences and Veterinary Medical Libraries. During the past two and a half years, Anderson has also served as the Mizzou Advantage liaison for the MU Libraries.
