SIDALC

Description: 
The Agricultural Information and Documentation System of the Americas (Latin America and the Caribbean), established in 1999 by the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) and also in collaboration with the Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE), both based in Costa Rica. “One of the most important components of the SIDALC is its document collection. A megabase of agricultural data known as Agri2000 was developed and is maintained by the Orton Memorial Library (IICA/CATIE). In addition, the system has other, non-document resources contributed by the different agricultural information services and systems at the national, regional and hemispheric levels. These will underpin the Agricultural Information Finder, which combined with Agri2000, will form the Agricultural Virtual Library. The operation of this hemispheric network is based on the information resources and installed capacity of IICA and the institutions that are an active part of the national networks of libraries.” (quoted from the site) SIDALC also participates in AgNIC and AGRIS
