AGRICOLA (external link) is first and foremost the catalogue for the NAL collection (external link) (National Agricultural Library of the United States). It also covers all aspects of agriculture worldwide, in some cases going back to the 15th century.

AGRIS (external link) is one of the world's largest specialist databases for all areas of Agricultural Sciences.


AGRICOLA and AGRIS are included in the OvidSP (link opens a new window) search interface from Wolters Kluwer and can therefore be searched at the same time. However, this meta-search capability is not supported if you explicitly want to search in one of the thesauri of the two databases.


Access to this database is restricted to the domain due to licensing reasons. If you have any technical problems or questions about access rights, please contact the Database Helpdesk.


Courses are held by appointment. They explain the various search strategies and features using specific examples.
