What is animal studies? What search terms should I use to find sources on nonhuman animals within the humanities? How can I study issues of animal exploitation as an undergraduate? This research guide aims to answer these questions for students at Swem.
The mission of AAVS is to unequivocally oppose and work to end experimentation on animals and oppose all forms of cruelty to animals. AAVS maintains a Shopping Guide of consumer products that are compassionately made--not tested on animals.

Why do students continue to dissect animals in biology classes? This volume looks beyond the typical yes-or-no debate about dissection to understand how we came to our current practice of dissection in intermediate and high school biology, even as preparation of health professionals has moved away from dissection. Why Dissection? walks students, teachers, and parents through these options to help them make more informed choices regarding their science education options.
Animal Ethos exposes the rich--yet poorly understood--moral dimensions of daily lab life, where serendipitous, creative, and unorthodox responses are evidence of concerted efforts by researchers, animal technicians, veterinarians, and animal activists to transform animal laboratories into moral scientific worlds.
An engrossing and eloquent study of the history and ethics of animal experimentation. Deborah Rudacille offers a compelling and cogent look at the history of this divisive topic, from the days of Louis Pasteur and the founding of organized antivivisection in England to the Nazi embrace of eugenics, from animal rights to the continuing war between PETA and biomedical researchers, and the latest developments in replacing, reducing, and refining animal use for research and testing.
