Electronic Documents Update from AWIC

The Animal Welfare Information Center (AWIC) is compiling an electronic library of full-text animal welfare information. In response to the demand from our patrons for electronic animal welfare legislation and other related documents, we have compiled this collection of documents in WordPerfect 5.1 and ASCII (formatted for DOS systems). As other laws or policies become available electronically, the files are updated. We welcome any suggestions or contributions. Documents already in WordPerfect or ASCII format are greatly appreciated.

Each disk contains specific types of documents. Volume I contains U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations and public laws that relate to the Animal Welfare Act. Volume II contains National Institutes of Health public laws, regulations, manuals, and policies relating to animal care and use. Volume III contains legislation and policy from Federal agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration, and from professional groups such as the American Veterinary Medical Association. Volume IV contains useful full-text animal care monographs and articles, and Volume V contains bibliographies and resource guides.

Requestors of the electronic material must provide one formatted, 3 1/2", high-density floppy disk for each volume. To request the full set, please send five (5) disks. Please specify the preferred format (WordPerfect or ASCII). Patrons who have received the disks in the past may request an update by sending a new disk and requesting specific files. For electronic downloading of these files, patrons are directed to the NETVET gopher (gopher:// For more information about contributing to or receiving information on the electronic documents project, contact AWIC, 5th Floor, National Agricultural Library, 10301 Baltimore Ave., Beltsville, MD 20705.
