CAS STNext® coffee lecture: Exploring the agriculture cluster

Time: 15:00 CET (9:00 a.m. EST/3:00 p.m. CET) Length: 15 minutes

CAS STNext® includes clusters, which are collections of databases that group together similar files based on a shared feature or content. These clusters help searchers more efficiently find results in multiple files simultaneously. In this session, we will share an overview of the AGRICULTURE cluster, which contains a variety of databases known to include publications and data relevant to the agricultural field. In this session, we will share tips on how to search using the cluster and highlight the content and coverage of the databases in AGRICULTURE. We will also provide examples showing how searchers might use this data in their search workflow.
