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.
In an economic study of the Netherlands East Indies a distinction was made between absolute and relative deficiency in prosperity. Of the indigenous population 80 % was engaged in agriculture. Material economic development had lagged behind non-material development.To raise the prosperity of the rural population further encouragement of the farmers was needed to intensify and rationalize their farms, and raise their production and efficiency in food and cash crops, especially in view of their rising needs and the growing population. Circumstances and conditions were then favourable for larger exports. The shift from subsistence agriculture towards export agriculture should however be gradual to allow an increase in economic resilience of the farmers.
