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.
Despite the increase in substitutes for wood the world consumption of wood had increased. The principal timber-producing countries could not raise their production so that tropical forests would have to supply more of the world's timber. Tropical exploitation of timber however involved many difficulties and the supply may be more suitable for pulping or processing into wood cellulose, acetic acid, methanol, tar and charcoal.The charcoal industry in the Netherlands East Indies would be most successful if there was a ready market for the charcoal, as for tin-smelting or blast furnaces. The sale of other products such as acetic acid for coagulation of latex could help to promote the industry. Decline of the United States charcoal industry by competition with synthetic methanol might improve the market in countries where methanol was not a principal product. In the Netherlands East Indies the sale of acetic acid, wood tar and charcoal seemed secure for the charcoal industry and perhaps there was scope for export.
