WHO SHE IS: Head Librarian, School of Veterinary Medicine YEARS AT PENN: 14 at Penn; 6 at Penn Vet WHAT SHE DOES: Cavanaugh oversees the School’s two library facilities, Atwood Library and Information Commons in the new Hill Pavilion and the duPont Veterinary Medicine Library at the New Bolton Center. During the summer, the library staff takes care of behind-the-scenes activities—from annual reports to renewing journal subscriptions.
Penn's School of Veterinary Medicine is one of the world's premier veterinary schools. Founded in 1884, the School was built on the concept of Many Species, One Medicine. The birthplace of veterinary specialties, the School serves a distinctly diverse array of animal patients, from pets to horses to farm animals at our two campuses. In Philadelphia, on Penn's campus, are the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital for companion animals, as well as classrooms, laboratories and the School's administrative offices. The large-animal facility, New Bolton Center, in Kennett Square, Pa., encompasses hospital facilities for the care of horses and food animals as well as diagnostic laboratories serving the agriculture industry. The School has successfully integrated scholarship and scientific discovery with all aspects of veterinary medical education.
