The International System for Agricultural Science and Technology (AGRIS) is a multilingual bibliographic database that connects users directly to a rich collection of research and worldwide technical information on food and agriculture. Maintained by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), AGRIS has been serving users from developed and developing countries through facilitating access to knowledge in agriculture, science and technology since 1975. 

It offers 9,978,296 bibliographic records produced by more than 400 data providers (research centers, academic institutions, publishers, governmental bodies, development programmes, international and national organizations) from 144 countries. More than 400,000 agricultural and research professionals worldwide access AGRIS resources each month. While AGRIS is predominantly a bibliographic database, it also provides full text links to about 2 million of its records. 

AGRIS facilitates access to publications, journal articles, monographs, book chapters, and grey literature - including unpublished science and technical reports, theses, dissertations and conference papers in the area of agriculture and related sciences. Most of the AGRIS records are indexed by AGROVOC (the FAO multilingual Thesaurus). AGROVOC is widely used in specialized libraries as well as digital libraries and repositories to index content and for the purpose of text mining. It is also used as a specialized tagging resource for knowledge and content organization by FAO and other third-party stakeholders. New AGROVOC keywords can be suggested if needed, by sending an email to agrovoc@fao.org.
