Scientific and Technical Information Service
CIRAD proposes scientific and technical information products and services in the fields of agriculture and development in tropical, subtropical and Mediterranean regions.
Three online services provide access to some or all of CIRAD’s publications. They offer access to bibliographic entries and to full-text documents when available.
CIRAD has four libraries open to the public in Montpellier, the Paris area and Reunion. They provide readers with library holdings specializing in tropical agronomy and the associated sciences.
The supply of e-information resources meets the scientific information requirements of the organization, covering all CIRAD’s fields of activity and interest, in science and techniques, and in the human and social sciences.
CIRAD designs websites on information and publishing resources, and organizes and provides training in scientific writing and information management. It also undertakes appraisals and is involved in international scientific and technical information projects.
