Dolphins – Library of Congress Science Tracer Bulletin

Dolphins – Library of Congress Science Tracer Bulletin – http://www.loc.gov/rr/scitech/tracer-bullets/dolphinstb.html

Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:

  • What are some uses of dolphins?
  • What diseases are dolphins subject to?
  • What journals relate to dolphins?


The “Tracer Bullet” series from the Library of Congress were intended as starting points to put people “on target” for a specific topic. This is an older bibliography (1991) that still has a lot of good basic information in it. The “subject headings” of the Tracer Bulletin are searches into the LC catalog and can generate newer titles. The “basic texts” section will probably get you up to speed if you haven’t researched dolphins before.

I’ve included this resource here because the US Navy has a history of using dolphins as service animals.
