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 influence of geographical factors on the distribution of different types of farming was studied in the part of North Holland north of the River Y, the 'Noorderkwartier', with the exception of Kennemerland.As a working hypothesis, it was assumed that each farm or farm activity developed according to the favourableness and adversity of conditions for any farms which may compete. To simplify the study the area was divided into 14 cultural districts, in each of which one or more farming activities predominated. Of these categories of agricultural production, 6 were described for each of the cultural districts. The survey showed that geographical factors did indeed influence the distribution of the different farming types but that the farmer's capital and sometimes his personal initiative were very important. The distribution of different farms in the cultural districts was used as confirmation of the hypothesis; the occurrence of horticulture was a clear illustration.
