Tom Regan Animal Rights Archive,

Tom Regan is a leading scholar on animal rights. The North Carolina State University Libraries created this website "to organize, preserve, and provide access to the Tom Regan Collection, which consists of Regan's personal papers and books documenting his key role in the animal rights movement" and to develop an animal rights research portal.

Topics covered include:

  • animal experimentation
  • animal rights
  • animal rights legislation
  • animals in entertainment
  • animals in the news
  • clothing
  • diet
  • ethics
  • exhibitions
  • farmed animals
  • organizations
  • veterinarians
  • wildlife

Guides to manuscript collections, including the Tom Regan Papers and others, are provided. Links to numerous other sites are given.

The Gallagher Law Library has two of  Regan's influential works:

  • The Case for Animal Rights, 1983. HV4708.R43 1983 at Classified Stacks
  • Defending Animal Rights, 2001.  HV4711 .R366 2001 at Classified Stacks

On a similar topic, the May 2, 2005 issue of the Law Library News column featured a list of selected sources on animal rights. The Washington State Bar Association has an Animal Law Section.
