About this webinar
This webinar will introduce AGRIS (the International System for Agricultural Science and Technology), a global public domain database with more than 8 million structured bibliographical records on agricultural science and technology. AGRIS covers the wide range of subjects related to agriculture science and technology, including forestry, animal husbandry, aquatic sciences and fisheries, human nutrition, and extension. Its content includes unique grey literature such as unpublished scientific and technical reports, theses, conference papers, government publications etc.
Since 1975, AGRIS is maintained by FAO to serve users from developed and developing countries through facilitating access to available knowledge in agriculture, science and technology.
In a move to enhance the content emanating from Africa, AGRIS is inviting existing and potential Agricultural Data Providers to attend this webinar and learn more about AGRIS and the benefits of participating in the program.
