Library resource trial: The Burleigh Dodds Science (BDS) Database for sustainable agriculture


What’s the resource?

We (the Library Service) has set up trial access to The Burleigh Dodds Science (BDS) Database. It is the central hub for over 1,600 chapters on the key research, topics and themes across agricultural science, covering crops, livestock and forestry.

Organised thematically, users can easily find the content they need by searching across all subjects or delving into sub-divided collections.
Designed to support industry and research centres, it provides 24/7 access to the latest research information in sustainable agriculture and gives unique access to reviews of key research and trends from 4000+ internationally recognised experts.

About the trial

We have free access to BDS from now until 31 July 2022. You can access it using your Cranfield username and password.
