American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM) Reading List

This page contains books and journals recommended as study materials for the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM) examination that are available through the Penn State University Libraries. This list does not replace the official ACLAM reading list. Candidates are responsible for ensuring they use the latest ACLAM reading list. Residents are responsible for ensuring they are using the correct edition of a book for their exam. Please ask your librarian, mentor, or specialty board examination committee if questions arise.

"This reference list provides the sources of the majority of the examination questions for the 2020 exam. Journal articles used for the exam are typically those published within the last 5 years. This list is not meant to be all-inclusive (e.g., it does not indicate the only resources candidates should use to prepare for an upcoming examination). Note that the ALL ACLAM Series Blue Books are heavily referenced and are considered core references."
