AGRIS

Description: 
FAO implemented AGRIS in 1975 to begin building an International Information System for the Agricultural Sciences and Technology through the development of a collaborative network of institutions around the world. Currently, the AGRIS bibliographic database contains 2.3 million records including grey literature not generally available through normal channels. This data is now available in AGRIS AP XML format and is collected from AGRIS resource centres in countries worldwide. To date, 240 national, international, and intergovernmental organizations participate in AGRIS development. In the newly implemented AGRIS interface, both “Simple” and “Search Assistant” advanced strategies provide access to the repository. Some records provide a link to the full-text document. Additionally, a Google search for the full text document of a bibliographic record can be executed. AGRIS is multilingual and uses the AGROVOC Thesaurus as its controlled vocabulary.
