AgriOcean DSpace

AgriOcean DSpace (AOD) is a joint initiative of the United Nations agencies of FAO and UNESCO-IOC/IODE to provide a customized version of DSpace 1.7.1 (JSPUI version), an open source, digital repository software. 

Its main objective is to make scientific literature in the field of oceanography, agriculture and related sciences available in digital form. AgriOcean DSpace is set-up for the digital repository communities of AGRIS (FAO) and Odin (UNESCO-IOC), but can be downloaded and used by any research institution interested.

To explore the AOD functionalities, take a look at the demo installation:

Minimum services on AIMS this summer

As summer holidays have started in Europe most people are on their annual holidays and limited staff remain in office, this might lead to a delay in answering questions. As a result AIMS will be maintained at a minimum, however, new user approval will continue normally.

We thank you for your understanding and your usual support. Full services resume on the 1st of September 2014. We would like to wish you a successful summer and a pleasant wintertime depending on your region. 

Meanwhile continue channelling your queries to aims@fao.org
