CURRENT AWARENESS SERVICE UPDATE 197 .S'
--....

A major goal of the National Agricultural Library is to akr- ,, d Ad
make available current agricultural and related useful publications to
USDA researchers and administrative personnel, to land-grant colleges,
and the world-wide agricultural community. To attain this end NAL draws
on a variety of resources, both internally and externally generated and
publicly and privately produced. Participation by both the public and
private sector are essential to the maintenance of any large technical
information program, and therefore NAL seeks to attract both.

Readers of ALIN are familiar with the Bibliography of Agriculture,
published by ORYX Press and the AGRICOLA formerly CAIN data base
available for on-line searching from Lockheed Information Systems, or
the Systems Development Corporation; and as previously announced in a
June 1976 supplement to ALIN, Current Contents Project 38. What
follows is an update on that Project.

CURRENT CONTENTS PROJECT 38

For readers who missed the first offer of Project 38 or who may not have
seen the announcement, it is an NAL administered program which makes the
Current Contents Series of publications of the Institute for Scientific
Information (ISI) available to the agricultural research community at
sharply reduced rates. First introduced in 1970, TSI agreed to treat
separate subscriptions from USDA agencies or cooperating organizations
utilizing Federal funds at group subscription rates. Thus individual
subscribers were able to realize savings of up to $320 per title on 5
year subscriptions.

Although the agreement was obviously beneficial to the participating
organizations, there were questions regarding the overall cost of
administering the program. The savings on subscriptions were offset by
costs incurred in transferring funds from the subscriber to NAL so that
ISI could be paid. These problems have now been overcome. The
Agricultural Research Service has underwritten the continuation of
Project 38 by signing a 5 year subscription contract with ISI. The
contract period runs from January 1, 1976 until December 31, 1980 and we
now have 350 subscribers. However readers who missed last year's offer
may still subscribe for the remaining four years (January 1, 1977 to
December 31, 1980). Under the contract the NAL will monitor the
contract and validate subscription orders. The Contracting Offiger's
Representative is Gerald J. Sophar, Executive Officer, National-Agri-
cultural Library.

CURRENT CONTENTS


Current Contents is a series of publications by the Institute for
Scientific Information (ISI) based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It
is an effective and economic solution of the treble problem of
literature scanning, reading selection, and rapid dissemination of
information. The weekly issues present to the reader the titles of
papers and all other substantive material from more than 1000 journals
reporting worldwide research and practice in the social and behavioral
sciences. This comprehensive service enables scholars, scientists,
educators, and managers to keep up with new developments in their own
and related fields. There are seven editions in this series and two
separate indexes, each of which is published as a separate weekly issue.
The editions are:

Edition Title

1. CC/Agriculture, Biology & Environmental Sciences

2. CC/Clinical Practice

3. CC/Engineering, Technology and Applied Sciences

4. CC/Social and Behavioral Sciences

5. CC/Life Sciences (Without Weekly Subject Index)

6. CC/Life Sciences (With Weekly Subject Index)

7. CC/Physical and Chemical Sciences

Weekly Subject Index to Life Sciences

Weekly Subject Index to Physical & Chemical Sciences

Each weekly issue presents to the reader the titles of papers and all
other substantive material from more than 1,000 journals within the
scope of the particular edition.


ELIGIBLE PARTICIPANTS


The agreement provides for the participation of all USDA agencies and
cooperating institutions utilizing Federal funds. Cooperating
institutions are defined in the following legislation: PL 84-352, PL
87-788, PL 88-74, and PL 89-106. No other Government agency has
permission to use this contract.
