IACUC Support

At the University of Pittsburgh, literature searches for the “3R’s”  are required for Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) protocols using warm-blooded species that are classified in the USDA Pain Classifications D or E (other than birds, mice of the genus Mus, and rats of the genus Rattus).

Researchers needing assistance to meet this requirement can consult with a librarian who can conduct the searches, offer keyword suggestions, or provide training on a database.
