Se debe tener presente que cuando las citas de las revistas seleccionadas remiten a monografias, para saber si estas se encuentran en las colecciones fisicas de la BSI-EARTH o en los recursos electronicos, se consulta el catalogo en linea de acceso publico OPAC, en las bases de datos (Wilson, SIDALC, TEEAL

The study shows that most used e-resources in decreasing order were the CAB Abstract, TEEAL
, AGORA, e-granary and HINARI.
Only few resources like online public access catalogue (OPAC), Internet facilities, TEEAL
, HINARI, Science direct, NUC virtual library were seen as satisfactory by the respondents.
This initiative was later complemented by other subject-specific initiatives such as AGORA, OARE, HINARI, and TEEAL
(Manda, 2005; Oduwole and Sowele, 2006).
For example, the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria has subscribed overseas for The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library (TEEAL
) on CD-ROM both at the Kashim Ibrahim Library and the Institute for Agricultural Library both of same institution for use by postgraduate students and other researchers.
Organizations with databases such as AGRICOLA, CABI, EBSCO HOST, HINERI, TEEAL
, AGORA, OGIAR and a host of others, deliver some materials on CD-ROM thereby becoming saving grace for African countries by providing locally available database for their communities through these services, in places where wide area network (WAN) and other aspects of automation are lacking.
The library is subscribed to TEEAL
(The essential electronic agricultural library) a full text document delivery service covering some 70 frequently cited journals.
Such is expected since some libraries like MOUAU and UNAAB have the Essential Electronic Agricultural Library (TEEAL
) therefore are providing access to serials and article titles using CD-ROM facilities.
A good example of this resource sharing is TEEAL
(The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library), which allows access to all available agricultural journals.
