 DIGITAL RESOURCES FOR FAO STAFF 

 

The Library's digital resources are listed here below and include among others the 'Big four' most prominent publishers in science: Elsevier, Springer Nature, Wiley and Taylor & Francis, but also JSTOR (one of the most popular digital libraries of scholarly journals in the academic world) and bibliographic databases like the Web of Science, CAB Abstracts and ProQuest Central.

How to access?
FAO employees can access and download resources through the EZproxy gateway, an access and authentication tool used by libraries to provide access to restricted-access publications and research databases.

To access resources it is enough to authenticate yourself once a day with your FAO credentials as you usually do when you start working to access your FAO applications (infact most of the times you are already authenticated as an FAO user before you get to this page). Once you are authenticated you can access the individual resources by clicking on the EZproxy access links listed here below or by browsing the FAO Library Discovery interface, a single search interface to browse the Library's extensive online and print collections and to download subscribed digital content.
