Abstract

The starting of veterinary history information search: The veterinary collection service of APQA (Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency)

The world is a community. It is very important to create a healthy environment for community of prosperity and wellbeing. Due to changes in the global environment, new diseases are becoming more diverse. Diseases that were found only in animals in the past have also been found to humans nowadays, those are causing us enormous damage. Therefore, it is needed to build and serve animal disease information system, to share information and to cooperate with related organizations. APQA(Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency) was established in 1909 as Korea's first modern veterinary institution to control livestock diseases through animal quarantine and livestock disease research. By carrying out the "Veterinary Historical Archive Project"(172,434 pages of 408 kinds) to build a veterinary collection, we collect, organize and manage a large number of materials produced and collected by institution as well as related materials from external sources. Also, we provide veterinary historical materials through website and mobile application. We would like to introduce the veterinary information database construction project, old veterinary books publishing and veterinary history research project to share information with related organizations and to provide users with easy access to historical information about animal diseases for creating a healthy environment.
