John A. Morris Library at the Gluck Equine Research Center

The Morris Library was established in 1987, the result of a generous gift from John A. Morris and family. Mr. Morris was a Thoroughbred owner and breeder. When initially established, the Morris Library had one computer terminal, two databases on CD-ROM and a small print collection. Since that time, the Library’s access to electronic resources has grown exponentially. The Morris Library was one of the first primarily electronic information centers in the nation and remains the only one dedicated to the horse and veterinary medicine.


The Morris Library provides equine health-related information in support of the research conducted at the Gluck Equine Research Center. The Library also serves as an equine information resource to the general public, horse owners, veterinarians, and researchers around the world.
