(Image credit: pixabay.com, CC0 license)
We are pleased to announce three upcoming webinars in English, French and Spanish about how to search AGORA with Summon. Summon facilitates literature research on the AGORA portal enabling the user to search resources by keyword, filter search results, save search items and to export citations. AGORA’s main purpose is to improve the quality and effectiveness of agricultural research, education and training in low- and middle-income countries. AGORA/Research4Life provides free or low cost access to peer-reviewed journals (to date, 6,500), datasets and e- books (to date, 22,000) in agriculture and related biological, environmental, social and other research domains.
The upcoming webinar will present Summon functionalities and how they can be used to effectively search the AGORA platform. Participants can choose between the English, French or Spanish version of the seminar.
