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.
Levert analysed the dualistic character of the Java sugar industry (entailing the cultivation of sugar-cane on peasant farms). The significance and use of labour was discussed as a factor of production in indigenous societies. A historical analysis was presented on the use of native labour during the period 1600-1879, when the Government's measures on labour were most strongly felt.Since 1879, private enterprises came into prominence and the period consisted of two stages, the first until 1918, with attempts to solve the labour problems in an individual patriarchal way and a second one (1918-1930), when political economic problems caused an interplay of three factors: government, indigenous population and the centralized sugar industry. The impact of the world crisis on this industry in the early thirties was discussed and suggestions were made on the status and use of indigenous labour.
