Video Library

The Veterinary Bioscience Institute has collected a broad range of high quality videos created for our online courses and webinars. The videos are in depth enough that the context of a course or webinar is not needed to benefit from the videos. Some of the titles are listed below. This is an ever evolving list as new courses and webinars are constantly being created.
A full list of titles, over 70, can be requested by emailing or viewed by scrolling down. Videos are stored on dedicated streaming servers and provided as streaming video. This means that video is visualized as soon as it is initiated, without needing to wait for it to download, which is similar to how movies are viewed on Veterinary Bioscience Institute's Media Library platform has been designed by our Information Technology staff with laboratory animal science and biomedical communities in mind.

Videos are subdivided into general topics, such as anesthesia and analgesia or surgery. Additionally, the video library is easily searchable. The Video Library also includes a ‘My Briefcase’ function which allows you to store your favorite videos for quick access. Participants can rate videos and also leave comments.
