Swine Information Library

About the Library

The Swine Information Library is a compendium of 10754 papers (PDF format) from 80 swine veterinary conferences*, collected and published annually by the AASV. Additionally, 613 articles from the AASV's Journal of Swine Health and Production are part of this resource. AASV Members receive access to the complete Swine Information Library on the AASV web site as a benefit of membership (beginning in 2010). No additional purchase is required for member online access!

The Swine Information Library is also available for purchase on a USB flash drive, for portability and use without Internet access. Purchase of the flash drive is limited to AASV members and Journal of Swine Health and Production subscribers, in accordance with our agreements with the organizations from which we draw content.An order form is online here (login required). You may also order the flash drive when you renew or begin your membership. Institutional subscribers may contact the AASV office for ordering information.

The full text of the articles is searchable as part of the general site search function available from the top of every AASV web page. You may restrict this search to include only the Swine Information Library.

Correction for early March 2012 drives: A production oversight led to several incorrect links in the 2012 AASV Pre-Conference Seminars index. [The PDFs are there, but the filenames [page numbers] changed and the index didn't.) To fix this, you may download a new index.htm file and place it inside the AASVPCS folder on the USB flash drive. Instructions for Windows users follow; Mac and Linux are similar:

  1. Insert your 2012 AASV Swine Information Library USB Flash Drive
  2. Right-click this link and select "Save target as..." (Internet Explorer) or "Save Link As..." (Firefox).
  3. Find the flash drive in [My] Computer and open it -- the drive letter will probably be E: or later in the alphabet.
  4. Open the AASVPCS folder
  5. Confirm that you see sub folders for the years 2007-2012 and an index.htm file.
  6. Click "Save" and replace the existing index.htmfile.
