About my libraryThe Max Henry Memorial Library is a collection of over 1000 books and manuscripts. It includes early veterinary textbooks, books about animal health and veterinary science in Australia and books written by Australian veterinarians.
The library was formed in 1931 by Mr Max Henry from books received by the Australian Veterinary Journal for review. Originally known simply as the AVA Library, it was renamed the Max Henry Memorial Library in 1961 to commemorate the life's devotion of Max Henry to veterinary science in general, and to the AVA, its journal and the library in particular.
The Max Henry Memorial Library is currently housed in the Gilruth Library at the Veterinary School of the University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria. The collection has grown to over 1000 items. The collection is open to the public. AVA members and students and staff of the University of Melbourne are able to borrow selected items from the collection.
