Agricultural Librarianship and
Documentation as a Profession, and
several specialized topics centering on
bibliographic data bases, international
centers, and tropical agriculture.
A number of important impressions were
gained from the papers, discussions,
informal talks, and private meetings.
Progress has accelerated dramatically
within the last 5 years in many world
areas in handling, organizing, and
dissemination of agricultural informa-
tion. A single example is the
scientific agricultural organization
for Southeast Asia, located at
Los Ba'Xos, P.I., which has a mini-
computer and is offering regional
services in batch mode to its member
countries and organization. Simi-
larly, unusual products and a great deal
of imagination go into information
packaging for local consumption whether
from national or regional centers.
There is an expressed need to access
and to utilize non-research litera-
ture. This need is not met either by
AGRIS nor adequately by AGRICOLA. Moves
to utilize this type of literature, as
well as that known as alternative
technology, will be forthcoming.
There is a clear move to group agri-
cultural information systems or pro-
cessing into multi-country, regional
centers, or consortium. These
international or regional centers are
grouped by similarities such as climate,
productivity, common languages, or
geography. Agriculture overrides
nationalism so pooling of resources and
expertise seems to be working for most
Products such as printed bibli-
ographies, serial lists for libraries,
resource directories, and computer
searches are in great demand and are
used. There is a real awareness in
developing countries of the role
librarians and documentalists should be
playing in improving the agricultural
and economic status of their countries
or regions through the use of informa-
AGRIS activities are very much a part
of the developing countries biblio-
graphic activities. AGRIS has
engendered a sense of cooperation and
pride among these countries, largely
based on the fact that they met the
challenge and are all pulling in the
same direction. This spirit of
accomplishment is a great aid in work-
ing on related projects or programs and
should go far in establishing the FAO
as a major agent for bibliographic and
Agricultural information as a
discipline is one of the cleaner and
more prestigious jobs in developing
countries and elsewhere outside of the
United States. It attracts some highly
skilled professionals who can pull
support from different sources and
deliver realistic programs. Funding
for agricultural information programs
and for regional or international
centers is strong. Because of this,
the centers can provide many advanced
Practical information from the field
is eagerly sought by extensionists
and scientists. Identification and
retrieval of this information would
increase the usefulness of AGRIS and
other international and regional
documentation systems. IAALD may be
the organization which can provide the
coordination necessary for retrieval of
this nonconventional literature. LS

CREATIVITY -- SHOULD WE USE IT?
This is the title of the keynote address to be delivered by Allen S. Lefohn at
the program meeting of the Science & Technology Section, Association of College
and Research Libraries, American Library Association on Sunday, June 29 at 9:00
a.m. Lefohn is Chairman of the Western Information Network on Energy, Helena,
Following the address, the audience will be invited to participate in one of
three concurrent panels.
I. Outreach -- Getting Information to the User.
Outreach means getting the results of research to the people to
help them solve their problems. Can the college and research
libraries effectively be a part of the distribution channel or are
they the bottleneck? Existing SIT systems do not include the general
public as clients, customers, or users.
DISCUSSION LEADER: Gerald Sophar, Executive Officer, Technical
Information Systems, Science and Education Administration, U.S.
Department of Agriculture
II. Machine-Readable Bibliographies and Other Systems Available for
Delivery of Information.
The computer technologies For handling information, which are becoming
more accessible for libraries of all types, are multiplying the
possibilities for improving bibliographic control.
DISCUSSION LEADER: Charles Gilreath, Reference Librarian, Texas A&M
Ill. Collection Development
Library staffs should develop a sensitivity to the needs of a variety
of users: undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, research
DISCUSSION LEADER: Jan Kennedy, Chief, Lending Branch, Library Opera-
tions Division, Technical Information Systems, Science and Education
Administration, U.S. Department of Agriculture
The panels will meet from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. The participants will then
reconvene as a whole at 11:30 a.m. to hear summaries and recommendations from
the Discussion Leaders.

ment in the library science field.

Recently the new version of AGRICOLA 79-
was added as File 10, replacing the earlier
AGRICOLA 70-78 file (now renumbered as File
110). The new AGRICOLA 79- reflects the
National Agricultural Library's new tape format
using MARC (MAchine Readable Cataloging)
specifications. The new file was loaded to
match our current program of achieving
standardization of data field labels across files.
File 110, AGRICOLA 70-78, on the other hand,
still reflects the earlier file preparation. File
110 is scheduled for a reload in mid-Spring,
and at that time will be prepared to match
the new File 10 as much as possible. In the
interim, there are a few key differences in
searching between the two files:
File 10 File 110
Field AGRICOLA 79- AGRICOLA 70-78
Corporate Source CS= /CS
Section Heading Code H: CC: (Categor) Code)
OC= (Old Category Co
Call Number CA= NO= (NAL Call Numbe
Contract Number CN- RN: (Report Number)
Publication Year PY- SY= (Search Year)
Other differences between the two files reflect
the new field specifications available with the
MARC input format. For example, the new
file has direct access to conference
information by location, title, and year, to
standardization capabilities such as ISBNs,
ISSNs, and CODENs, to series information,
section headings, etc., that is not readily
available in the present File 110. Where
possible, and/or available, this information will
also be made directly accessible when File 110
The best advice for searching at the present
time is to consider each of the two files as
completely different and use the documentation
that has been provided, i.e., the old
documentation in Volume I of the Guide to
DIALOG Databases for File 10 should be
renumbered File 110, and the Preliminary
Edition for the new File 10 (mailed with the
December 1979 CHRONOLOG newsletter)
should be used for the present File 10. This
documentation is correct for each of the files
as they now stand.
de) Editor's Note: FNIC and AGECON data
') do not appear in the 1979 tapes
because of problems in handling
abstracts in the MARC conversion. This
data will be available in a supplemen-
tary tape currently being processed. S

MAJOR AGRICULTURAL MICROFICHE SETS
The National Agricultural Library in
cooperation with the USDA's Economic
Research Service have filmed seven
major serial files of ERS for the years
1961 or 1962 through 1977. These cover
the years of existence of the Economic
Research Service under that name. It
is presently recast and renamed as the
Economics, Statistics and Cooperatives
Service. All filming is on microfiche
and sets are available for purchase
from the National Technical Information
Service, 5285 Port Royal Road, Spring-
field, VA 22161. Contact Dr. Josephs
for prices which are not available at
The seven periodical and report series
cover some of the most active agri-
cultural economic years of the United
States and offer an archival substitute
in easily-usable form for historians
and researchers. Approximately 77,000
pages of printed matter were filmed on
2,416 fiche. The titles covered are:
