Canadian Agricultural Library

From Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

Since its formal establishment in 1910, the Canadian Agriculture Library (CAL) has built a substantial collection on agricultural and food sciences. CAL provides information services to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, portfolio partners and the general public in support of research, innovation and informed decision making.

CAL is a member of the Federal Science Library (FSL), a partnership of seven federal science libraries who have joined together to establish a portal where you can search the print collections and repositories of all the libraries from a single place.
