On the 26th of April, 2016, teachers of the Modern Languages Department and students of SAUM took part in the event focused on the presentation of AGORA programme and official site of Republican Scientific Agricultural Library that took place in the Centre for Academic Success of SAUM.
Republican Scientific Agricultural Library of the State Agrarian University of Moldova, with a history of 80 years, has the status of academic library and republican center of information and documentation in the field of agricultural sciences.
AGORA (Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture) is a programme to provide free or low cost access to major scientific journals in agriculture and related biological, environmental and social sciences to public institutions in developing countries. Launched in October 2003, AGORA provides access to more than 3000 journals from the world’s leading academic publishers.
Led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the goal of AGORA is to improve the quality and effectiveness of agricultural research, education and training in low-income countries, and in turn, to improve food security. Through AGORA, researchers, policy-makers, educators, students, technical workers and extension specialists have access to high-quality, relevant and timely agricultural information via the Internet. AGORA is one of the four programmes that make up Research4Life.
Sincere thanks to the representatives of the Republican Scientific Agricultural Library of the State Agrarian University of Moldova, Ecaterina Madan şi Vera Sobeţchi, for the useful, necessary and interesting information!
