The Wageningen UR Library's department of Documentation and Publication Services (DPS) compiles publication files from its own documentation databases about one specific, current subject, such as foot-and-mouth disease, bird flu or salt water agriculture. The design of the files has recently been updated with photographs and illustrations, among other things.
A file consists of the following: an introductory text and a definition, and the most important 'core publications' with an option to more publications. The reader is also referred to websites, research projects or experts within Wageningen UR. New files have also been compiled on, for example, mega companies, biofuels and agricultural therapy.
Files are made for the following databases: ARTIK+, Groenkennisnet and Land Bodem Water, which, in addition to subject based files, also now contain area-oriented files (for example, The Green Hart).
