Individual CGIAR centers have produced, over the years, books and other media that reflect the results of CGIAR agricultural research across the globe. To create wider awareness and better utilization of these valuable research results a virtual vehicle for free access to CGIAR books has been developed in partnership with Google. CGBooks is a virtual platform for free full text access to over 2000 books published and copyrighted by the various CGIAR centers. This resource is enabled by Google Search allowing users to immediately read or download the full text of any book, or order a print copy, with a few clicks of a mouse. CGBooks is the result of a collaborative partnership involving CGIAR Information Managers and Web Managers, and Google staff. It has enhanced the accessibility and availability of CGIAR research, simply by making publications instantly searchable over the Internet.
