Institutions in developing countries can now have resources usually available only to universities with large libraries. From the African Crop Science Journal to World Development, around 130 agricultural journals are now accessible through The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library (TEEAL). This box, with 100 CD-ROMs, contains the full text, illustrations and graphics, and a searchable index of all 130 journals for the period 1993 1996. The box costs $10,000/E9,750, which represents only 2.7% of the actual subscription cost. Annual updates will be available at $5,000/E4,875. TEEAL is available only to institutions in developing countries. One volume has been supplied, with CTA support, to the Regional Agricultural Information Network (RAIN) that is to operate under the Association for Strengthening Research in Eastern and Central Africa (ASARECA). A second set is supplied to the Southern African Centre for Cooperation in Agricultural and Natural Resources Research and Training (SACCAR) for the benefit of researchers in all countries of the Southern Africa Development Community. CTA will supply a third set to a regional institution in western Africa.
