The National Agricultural Library has debuted its Directory of Agriculture‐Related Databases, Datasets, and Information Systems, otherwise known as AgDB. AgDB presents a collection of metadata records that describe agriculture‐related information systems available through various means, including: Internet, online services, CDROM, and even diskette and 9‐track tape. The full‐text of the metadata records is keyword searchable. For Internet‐based systems, links to the actual resource are included within the metadata record. AgDB is a prototype project of the Agriculture Network Information Center (AgNIC) initiative.
