AGORA Webinars: Effective Search Strategies for Researchers. Finding resources on AGORA and other platforms (EN/FR/ES)
Published: Tuesday 11th July 2017 Category: Blog
We are pleased to announce three upcoming webinars in English, French and Spanish about developing search strategie for researchers. We will demonstrate how a well formulated search strategy can facilitate literature search on the AGORA platform via Summon and on other platforms.
AGORA provides access to peer-reviewed journals, dataseta and e-books in agriculture and related biological, environmental, social and other research domains. AGORA’s main purpose is to improve the quality and effectiveness of agricultural research, education and training in low- and middle-income countries. Summon is AGORA’s Google-like search engine and it is an instant and easy way to find research material from a single search box. It searches AGORA’s catalogue and quickly brings up scores of credible, relevancy-ranked results in full text form.
