Can I share the AGORA password with colleagues at my institution?

Although you may not put the password on the internet, we would encourage librarians and users to share it with legitimate members of their registered institution. This includes all staff and students, as well as visiting researchers who are all eligible to access AGORA, as long as they abide by the guidelines within the license agreement. Librarians are encouraged to put a link to AGORA on their institution's or library's website.

Where is the CAB Abstract access? (Use Summon or Scopus)

Unfortunately, we will have to interrupt the CAB Abstract access through AGORA temporarily. However, AGORA users will have the Summon platform for searching: Summon is a search engine that provides fast, relevancy-ranked results. In due course CAB Direct will be available, which is an invaluable resource.
