What is your relationship with agricultural information management standards, tools and services?
I manage the production of TEEAL (The Essential Electronic Agriculture Library), an off-line database of agricultural e-journals made available in over 100 low income countries around the world to give eligible institutions access to agricultural research materials. I develop and teach workshops on using e-resources. For other international projects, I am involved in capacity building in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and in this regard I develop and teach workshops that help faculty and graduate students develop a series of soft skills, such as scientific writing and authorship skills, that help them participate more fully in international agricultural research and to disseminate their results.
