Building Online Delivery Systems and Repositories for Agricultural University/Extension Publications and Journals
World Ag Info Project Design Team
Solution Scenario Concept: Most newly published material is in electronic format in much of N. America and Europe. Even when a print version is available, the original is electronic. This is common even for small publishers, academic society publications, and extension material. However, print is often still the norm for much of the rest of the world, limiting access to materials. Access to extension materials, agricultural journals, and historical agricultural material of relevance to African and Asian agriculture will be improved by conversion to electronic format. To further support wide usage, a delivery platform that supports multiple languages will be chosen.
WorldAgInfo Project Solution Scenario 4: Technologies and Information Exchange Systems. Based on the deliberations of participant groups in Workshop 1, the WorldAgInfo Design Team drafted a problems and solutions summary document (available within Section Three of the Final Report). This is one of several potential solution scenarios to emerge through that process. These were in turn used to inform proposed information projects generated by Workshop 2 participants in Livingstone, Zambia (available within Section Two of the Final Report).
