The British Small Animal Veterinary Association publishes a world-renowned series of books, manuals and other publications that together provide a comprehensive dataset covering small animal clinical practice. The new BSAVA Library allows users to search and access these publications at the granular level of chapter, article, drug entry, client leaflet or even congress lecture.
The resources are aimed at the veterinarian in practice but they are also widely used by specialists, veterinary students, veterinary nurses, veterinary nursing students and practice staff.
Ingenta CMS is Ingenta’s premier publishing platform for those who want their own individually branded and customised site. The BSAVA Library is a great showcase of Ingenta CMS functionality. Designed to be simple and intuitive it boasts a clean user interface with responsive design so that it can be accessed on the go. Items within the library have been ‘tagged’ to help users easily find material by particular clinical topic, animal, or content that is aimed at a particular audience.
Ian Mellor, BSAVA Publications Manager, said: “We are very excited about this latest phase of our digital innovation at the BSAVA. Our research shows members are busier than ever and the BSAVA Library makes it even easier for veterinary professionals to access a wide range of content from anywhere in the world.”
Rowland Conway, Product Director at Ingenta adds: “It has been fantastic working with BSAVA to make this extremely valuable practitioner content, much of it previously only available in print, available in new and exciting formats such as video case studies to enhance the user experience. The extremely flexible content modelling of Ingenta CMS has enabled slick presentation of and inter-relationships between non-traditional academic content such as client information, drug formularies and poison guides to more typical books, journals and proceedings. It has been an exciting journey to create a truly unique and accessible resource.”
