Databases
 
Agricola, through COS  
Compiled by the National Agricultural Library of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and published on the Web by Community of Science, AGRICOLA (Agricultural Online Access) is the most comprehensive source of U.S. agricultural and life sciences information. AGRICOLA serves as the document locator and bibliographic control system for the National Agricultural Library (NAL) collection. It contains over 3.3 million bibliographic records of journal articles, monographs, theses, patents, software, audio-visual materials, and technical reports related to agriculture from 1979 to the present. Indexers regularly scan over 1,400 journals for input into the database. Since 1984, the database also has included some records produced by cooperating institutions for documents not held by the NAL. Data is provided to Community of Science under contract with the National Technical Information Service. 
AGRIS/CARIS  
AGRIS is the international information system for the agricultural sciences and technology. It was created in 1974 to facilitate information exchange and to bring together world literature dealing with all aspects of agriculture. AGRIS is a cooperative system in which participating countries input references to the literature produced within their boundaries and, in return, draw on the information provided by the other participants. To date, 240 national, international and intergovernmental centres participate.

Thesaurus of Parasitology - Alphabetical Listing  
Focusing on areas of economic concern (medical and veterinary parasitology), with supporting terms drawn from ecology and epidemiology, this thesaurus was developed as a searching thesaurus as opposed to one primarily used for indexing purposes. It contains a large number of lead-in terms which can be used for free-text searching in databases which do not use controlled vocabularies (as primary means of access) and also those which do (supplementing the use of controlled vocabulary). The final product is a two-part thesaurus consisting of a hierarchical term listing and an alphabetical listing. This is for the alphabetical listing.
