This reference provides the groundwork, tools, and terminology required when conducting specialized searches for information and resources pertaining to traditional and emerging fields of agriculture. The editors present 16 contributions from librarians and other information workers that offer information on research resources across the academic agricultural disciplines. They offer information on library catalog search strategies, abstracts and indexes, bibliographies and literature guides, search engines, government documents, and other research related information. Each contribution addresses research in a particular sub-field of the general discipline of agricultural sciences.
