The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library (TEEAL).

TEEAL, or The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library, is a full-text and searchable database of articles from more than 275 high-quality research journals in agriculture and related sciences spanning several years. It arrives on an external hard drive that you can run on one computer workstation or make available to multiple computers via your local area network or intranet. For many years, TEEAL has been improving access at institutions with limited Internet time and/or financial resources. It is a searchable, offline, digital library which contains mainly agriculturally focused reference journals updated annually and delivered on the 1TB hard drive by Cornell University s Mann Library. This non-profit digital library includes some of the most prestigious full-text agriculture journals that leading publishers have gifted to TEEAL users.

TEEAL is available for purchase at a low cost, and is solely for education and research in public and non-profit institutions in eligible-income countries. When purchase TEEAL for the first time, you receive an external hard drive of journal content from 1993 through the currently available update year. TEEAL is updated each year. Individual updates are shipped to current/paid subscribers every year on a small flash drive.

TEEAL intends to train more than 22,000 users of agricultural information, including students, lecturers, researchers and government officials. The grant covers work in six African countries: Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda.

The Cornell library and the South Africa-based non-governmental organisation Information Training and Outreach Centre for Africa (ITOCA) are partners in the project. ITOCA has received a significant portion of the funding to support training, outreach and implementation in Africa.

The new three-year project started on 1 November last year.
