Computerized Bibliographic Services for USDA Research
A program of computer-based information services has been developed for scientists in the Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). A major component is the Current Awareness Literature Service (CALS), which includes the major data bases relevant to the various research areas in agriculture. The service, which is available to all USDA personnel, provides scientists with periodic bibliographies of citations and abstracts related to their research interests. Full hard copy for retrieved citations is also delivered. Other features include support of personal information systems and facilitation and dissemination of literature reviews.
