More effective search in the Knowledge Bank

If you are looking for information on organic agriculture and food, then the Knowledge Bank is the proper portal for you.

The Knowledge Bank Organic Agriculture and Food was set up by Innovation Centre Organic Agriculture (IBL) and Wageningen UR Library. The database contains research reports of Wageningen UR, the Louis Bolk Institute and foreign research institutes, but also brochures, posters and journal articles on research and education in organic agriculture and food. Over 17,000 publications are described, of which more than 3,100 are available in digital form.

During the last few months the Library and the IBL have worked at a new display of the search results. As a result user friendliness has improved considerably. You may now directly click on to the full text via the documents’s title. Moreover, in the search results you can read the first three lines of the summary. Through the link “more info” information on the nature of the publication, the complete summary and other information becomes visible. If no digital version is available you can see behind the button “Services” in which library of Wageningen UR the document can be found.

Have a look!
