ITOCA in collaboration with Albert R. Mann Library, Cornell University is pleased to announce the TEEAL Post-Graduate Research Paper Competition 2015 for post graduate students from six eligible African countries (Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda) to obtain TEEAL, The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library for their institution as well as prize money. TEEAL invites MSc and PhD students to submit research papers in food production, food security, agricultural and food policy or rural development.
About TEEAL: The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library (TEEAL), is a full-text and searchable database of articles from more than 325 high-quality research journals in agriculture and the related sciences. Beginning with the 2012 Update of the collection, which accounts for the redesign of both the TEEAL hardware and software, the collection arrives on a “mini computer” that you can run on one computer workstation or make available to multiple computers via your Local Area Network (LAN) or intranet. For many years, TEEAL has been improving access at institutions with limited Internet time and/or financial resources. It is a searchable, offline, digital library which contains mainly agriculturally focused reference journals updated annually and delivered by the TEEAL Project Office at Cornell University’s Mann Library.
MSc and PhD students from Nigeria, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia are invited to submit research papers in food production, food security, agricultural and food policy, and rural development. The Highlighted countries above are RUFORUM countries of operation and we encourage our member universities to participate.
