|Abstract: ||The Agriculture Network Information Center (AgNIC) is a voluntary alliance of more than 50 institutional partners who collaborate to bring quality agricultural information to Internet users. Over the years, AgNIC partners have tried to identify sources of funding to support the building of quality digital content. In 2004 and again in 2005, the National Agricultural Library (NAL) was able to provide small, one-year cooperative agreements to several AgNIC partners for a variety of content-building projects. These projects were envisioned to provide broad access to valuable information and to have mutual benefit to each participating institution and the National Agricultural Library.
The moderated panel session summarized a variety of successful projects funded by the National Agricultural Library / Agricultural Research Service ?mini-grant? cooperative agreement program and encouraged additional participation if future cooperative agreement funding becomes available. * Brief overview describing how the cooperative agreement program originated, the process for submitting proposals, and reporting requirements -Melanie Gardner * Improving Access to USAIN?s State and Agricultural Experiment Station Publications - Claudine Jenda * Digitization of Texas Agricultural Agency Publications in Support of Development of the National Digital Library for Agriculture - Robert McGeachin * Digitizing and Preserving Rare Images of Pathological Disorders of Corn (Zea Mays) and Potato (Solanum tuberosum) - Livia Olsen * Project to Digitize Back Files of the Journal of Rangelands - Jeanne Pfander * Project to Translate into Spanish the "English-only" Terms in the NAL Thesaurus - Janet Poley|
