Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands
The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.
Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.
The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.
As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".
All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.
The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.
The book is an elaborate report on earnings and expenses of labourers on plantations in Java. The purpose of this study, promoted by the government of the former Netherlands East Indies, was to examine how the coolie families lived and to find criteria to assess wages in the particular communities. Various groups of labourers showed a typical spending pattern. Huizenga analysed the changes in spending caused by an increase in income for a great number of expenses. Special attention was paid to the consumption of food. A line was drawn below which nourishment was considered inadequate. To improve nutrition, standard budgets were drafted. As a limit, at which essential needs were supplied, the income level was choosen at which energy value of the diet increased no more with increase in income. The same limit was found if the income level was taken where the income elasticities of the various spending categories began to deviate from the value one.
