AGRICOLA serves as the catalog and index to the collections of the National Agricultural Library, as well as a primary public source for world-wide access to agricultural information. The database covers materials in all formats and periods, including printed works from as far back as the 15th century. The records describe publications and resources encompassing all aspects of agriculture and allied disciplines, including animal and veterinary sciences, entomology, plant sciences, forestry, aquaculture and fisheries, farming and farming systems, agricultural economics, extension and education, food and human nutrition, and earth and environmental sciences.
CAB Abstracts provides comprehensive international coverage of the significant research and development literature in agriculture, forestry, aspects of human health, human nutrition, veterinary medicine and the management and conservation of natural resources. Sources scanned selectively for records are: professional and trade journals (over 9,000), reports, bulletins, conference proceedings, symposia, workshops, scientific texts, technical and popular books, theses, annual reports and a few categories of patents and standards.
Web of Science accesses the world’s leading scholarly literature in the sciences and social sciences and searches proceedings of international conferences, symposia, seminars, colloquia, workshops, and conventions.
