RockyDell Resources was an information business with emphasis on animal issues, ranging from animal- assisted therapy (think also equine assisted therapy) to the impact of visitors on zoo animals. The owner, David
Anderson, is a retired librarian with interest in providing better access to the literature. RockyDell Resources is
no longer taking customers.
Humans & Other Resources: H&OS, the quarterly bibliographic journal sold through the 1990s by RockyDell
Resources, was sold to the American Veterinary Medical Association. For information on current access to the contents,

Illinois 60173 USA; telephone 817/915-8070; fax 817/925-1329; email: GGolab@avma.org.
From 2001 to 2008 David Anderson prepared a bibliographic column for the International Society of AnthroZoology, published in the ISAZ Newsletters, no.22, November 2001, to no.22, Summer 2008. Initially it was intended to alert ISAZ
members to works outside the journals Anthrozoos and Society & Animals. It grew to include new books, single issues
of journals in human-animal studies, special human-animal issues of other journals, journal articles, theses and websites.
In 2007 Purdue University Press published Anderson's Assessing the Human-Animal Bond: A Compendium
of Actual Measures. It is available through the book trade. To order from Amazon.com or Purdue University Press via

In January 2006 Trafford Publishing released The Guide to Pet Loss Resources, 3rd Edition (2005). It is available
