The Commonwealth Forestry Institute of Oxford University houses an extensive and long-established library, including a microfilm unit set up with a grant from the Ford Foundation. The Commonwealth Forestry Bureau, a unit of the Commonwealth Agricultural Bureaux (CAB), occupies part of the same building and collaborates closely with the library. The bureau publishes Forestry Abstracts and, from January 1978, Forest Products Abstracts. It also supplies catalogue cards to match these journals. All CAB journals back to January 1973 are accessible through Lockheed's DIALOG system. Both the library and the bureau deal with individual enquiries.
