Jill Tivey, Library & Information Manager at SASA describes their collection like this:
Publications by SASA and under its previous name, the Scottish Agricultural Science Agency e.g. pesticide usage in Scotland surveys, pesticide poisoning of animals reports, annual reports.
Publications of other Scottish and UK bodies where relevant to SASA’s work e.g. DEFRA, Forestry Commission, Scottish Natural Heritage. Also includes historical material e.g. from Department of Agriculture and Fisheries for Scotland (DAFS) and Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries & Food (MAFF).
Limited collection of material from international bodies where relevant to SASA’s work.
Reference access to this interesting collection may be given to genuine researchers, on written application.
I’d like to welcome another organisation to the SWOP Directory, Marine Scotland Science.
