TitleNAL Catalog (AGRICOLA)
CreatorNational Agricultural Library
DescriptionAGRICOLA (AGRICultural OnLine Access) serves as the catalog and index to the collections of the National Agricultural Library of the USA, as well as a primary public source for world-wide access to agricultural information. The focus is on US information resources. 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. Although the NAL Catalog (AGRICOLA) does not contain the text of the materials it cites, thousands of its records are linked to full-text documents online, with new links added daily. The NAL Catalog (AGRICOLA) is organized into two bibliographic data sets: (1) NAL Online Public Access Catalog contains citations to books, audiovisuals, serials, and other materials, most of which are in the Library's collection; (2) Article Citation Database includes citations, many with abstracts, to journal articles, book chapters, reports, and reprints, selected primarily from the materials found in the NAL Catalog.
