AGRICOLA. Indexes current acquisitions of the National Agricultural Library, including books, serials, pamphlets, government documents, research reports, FAO and USDA publications, conference proceedings, and translations, patents, audiovisuals and technical reports. Inclusive coverage: 1970 to present; updated monthly.

AGRIS -- AGRIS is the international information system for the agricultural sciences and technology. The system identifies literature dealing with all aspects of agriculture, and covers: plant and animal production and protection; post harvest processing of primary agricultural products; forestry; fisheries; agricultural engineering; natural resources and the environment as related to agriculture; food; human nutrition; agricultural economics; rural development; and agricultural administration, legislation, information, education and extension.

Biological and Agricultural Index. Provides access to citations in the agricultural and biological literature and related subjects such as ecology, food science, nutrition, and veterinary medicine. Indexes articles, reports of meetings, review articles, special supplements, and book reviews dated 1983 to the present.

CAB Abstracts   --  CAB Abstracts, produced by the Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences, provides access to citations and abstracts of the international agricultural literature, including plant protection, forestry engineering, animal husbandry, animal and plant breeding, genetics, veterinary medicine, nutrition, rural development, economics, and leisure and tourism. CAB Abstracts indexes articles, books conferences, reports and other kinds of literature dated 1972 to the present.

CARIS -- CARIS is the Current Agricultural Research Information System, created by FAO in 1975 to identify and to facilitate the exchange of information about current agricultural research projects being carried out in, or on behalf of, developing countries. The System identifies projects dealing with all aspects of agriculture. The basic unit in CARIS is a set of data describing a single project, giving such details as the project title, objectives, inception and termination dates; names of researchers and their specializations, contact addresses of individuals and institutes carrying out the research.

CRIS: Current Research Information System -- CRIS is the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) documentation and reporting system for ongoing and recently completed research projects in agriculture, food and nutrition, and forestry.

Food Science and Technology Abstracts  --  Provides access to citations and abstracts dealing with all human food commodities and food processing (except for the production of raw food). Topics covered include microbiology, toxicology and hygiene, economics and statistics, engineering, packaging, and many food products. FSTA indexes articles, patents, standards, books, conference proceedings, research reports, dissertations, and legislation dated 1969 to the present.

Water Resources Abstracts  --  The database offers a comprehensive range of information on water-related research topics. It includes research reported from government agencies, private contractors, research centers, and universities found within journal articles, books, research reports, patents, conference proceedings, and government publications. Worldwide in scope, it contains over 265,000 citations, most with abstracts, dated from 1967 to the present, on such aspects as water quality, fish and aquaculture, conservation, waste, planning, engineering, pollution, water resources, erosion, ecological impact, environment, and law.
