Agricultural Databases

A database is an online collection of articles that you can search by topic or keyword.  Databases are great sources for articles because much of the material in library databases is the high quality, scholarly research material  that most professors want.  Most of our databases offer links to the full text of articles. 

All of the databases listed on this page are also available through the Van Wagenen Library website.
