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.
Not long after its discovery in the sixteenth century Surinam developed a plantation economy, needing many slaves from Africa. After the abolition of slavery in 1863, agricultural labour became very scarce. The thesis emphasizes the period 1863-1933, when the government of Surinam actively encouraged labour immigration from India and the Netherlands East Indies. The Government's immigration policy, its implementation and organization and the financing of immigration are discussed.These indentured labourers were allowed to opt for government settlement schemes after the expiry of their contracts. Thus developed a sector of agricultural smallholders. The final chapter describes the function of the plantations as employers and outlines agricultural development among smallholders.
