International Bibliographical Services for Marketing: An Appraisal in Terms of Convenience for Work in the Developing Countries

There is no lack of bibliographical services which cover food and agricultural marketing--including marketing in the developing countries. World Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology Abstracts (WAERSA), Agricultural Research Information System (AGRIS), and the bibliography issued by the F AO Marketing Service provide the fullest coverage. Other bibliographical services which include marketing in the developing countries are USDA's AGRICOLA and the bibliographical series of the Royal Tropical Institute of the Netherlands. The Inter-American Institute of Agricultural Cooperation and various universities have also issued selected marketing bibliographies. The number of titles held in one or another source is enormous. The issue to which this paper is addressed is how best to serve those practitioners of the subject who do not have access to a well-equipped library or are too busy to check through thousands of titles.
