Using FAO microfiche with AGRIS: FAO Online Documents

Life after the Microfiche Collection


The last microfiche issued was accession number 372999. The FAO is currently posting the full text of its reports on its website. These may be accessed by searching the website. In addition, the following strategy (suggested by the Chief of the Reference unit at the David Lubin Memorial Library) may be useful:

The FAO documents that are received by WAICENT and the Library are indexed into the FAO Library Catalogue. This catalogue is the primary index for all FAO documents including those available on microfiche. To get access to the documents themselves users should view Catalogue search results in the EXPAND format where there is a link to an individual document request form. The David Lubin Memorial Library staff retrieves these requests daily and either forwards them on to Publications and Sales if they are still in print or makes a paper or microfiche copy (for documents prior to 1998) and has the user invoiced for the cost.
