Documentation and reporting system for ongoing and recently completed research and education projects in agriculture, food and nutrition, and forestry. Contains over 30,000 descriptions of current, publicly-supported research projects conducted or sponsored by USDA research agencies, state agricultural experiment stations, the state land-grant university system, other cooperating state institutions, and participants in a number of USDA-administered grant programs, including Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and National Research Initiative (NRI), and the programs administered by the Science and Education Resources Development (SERD) unit of the Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES).
Reports are available for some of the grant projects listed in CRIS. Each record contains the following information that could prove useful in tracking down the report: Project number, accession number, agency, investigator and project title. Search for these reports in InfoKat Discovery. NTIS Database (National Technical Information Service) is a good place to check for evidence of availability of reports. Consult with reference staff in your library for additional ideas.
At the end of each report, publications related to the grant work are listed. Search for local holdings in InfoKat Discovery and in the E-Journals A-Z. Items that are not available locally can be requested by UK affiliates via Interlibrary Loan.
