Welcome to the Massasoit Community College Veterinary Technician Program Research and Help Guide !  

What are Research and Help Guides? 


Research Guides are a new way of organizing materials for students. Research Guides allow librarians and faculty to work together to create custom pages helpful to students. Here you will find information on the most frequently used print, electronic and online resources.


This Research Guide will help you locate resources in the areas of Veterinary Technology, as well as Veterinary Nursing, internal medicine, surgery, oncology, cardiology, emergency and critical care medicine, nutrition, physiology, and more.   



Find Background Information in Print Encyclopedias

General Encyclopedic Databases

Encyclopedia articles are a great way to gather background information as you begin your research.

Tips for using online reference collections:

  • Identify your main topic and keywords.
  • Try synonyms and different combinations of words. Experiment with broad and narrow (specific) terms.
  • Search in Gale Virtual Reference Library or Credo Reference for quick facts and general overviews of your topic

As always, if you have questions use the Chat or Email Me on the right hand side of this page to contact your Librarians for further assistance.
