Abstract:A directory prepared by the librarian of the Moisture utilization in the semi-arid tropics: summer rainfall agriculture (MUSAT:sra) Information Centre, Bio-Agricultural Library, University of California (Riverside), as 'an initial effort to get individuals, organizations and projects together by areas of mutual interest to promote knouwledge, cooperation and to perhaps avoid duplication of effort'. The book is based on the principle of a telephone directory: preceded by a list of acronyms and agency abbreviations, over 1500 references are indexed and retrievable by name, organization, subject, geographical area of expertise and location.
