AGRICOLA is a bibliographic database consisting of literature citations for journal articles, books, proceedings, theses, patents, translations, audiovisual materials, computer software, and technical reports pertaining to all aspects of agriculture. This extensive database provides selective worldwide coverage of primary information sources in agriculture and related fields. The literature cited is primarily in English, but over one-third of the database comprises citations in Western European, Slavic, Asian, and African languages. Since 1985, the CAB Thesaurus has been used to select controlled vocabulary terms for subject indexing. Library of Congress Subject Headings are used as controlled vocabulary for cataloging records.
ProQuest Deep Indexing: Agriculture supplements AGRICOLA with access to deep indexing for tables, figures, graphs, charts and other illustrations from the scholarly research and technical literature for selected records.
