Rural and Agricultural Communication

This page is brought to you with the courtesy of Agricultural Communication Documentation Center (ACDC) of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA. The links provided below takes you to a small sample strictly related to Nepal from a large repository of articles brought to you by ACDC. The articles cover communications aspects of agricultural and rural development in Nepal. Published during the past 30 years, these documents help reveal a wide range of efforts to improve rural communications. As a university-based resource and service, these resources bear an educational purpose. This repository is believed to be the largest electronically-searchable collection of literature about agriculture-related communications. It currently contains more than 32,000 documents involving 170 countries. The Center provides a unique service because the literature of this field is widely scattered and difficult to locate.

How you can search the collection online?

  1. Visit the ACDC web site at this address:
  2. Go to the page, “Search for a Document.”
  3. Conduct a “Subject” search, using the term: Nepal; or use search with other desired combinations
  4. Review the titles by scrolling through the list. They begin with the documents published most recently. Click on the title if you wish to see the full citation.

Four steps you can take to gain access to documents that you would like to access

  1. Check the Notes section at the bottom of each citation to see if it provides a web address. ACDC includes the address whenever available, so you can gain online access to the full document. Older documents in the collection are not available in digital form, however.
  2. Search for the document by title or author in a search engine (such as Google) to see if the document is available on the open web.
  3. Check to see if the document’s source (journal, book) is available from your local libraries.
  4. If none of the above approaches proves successful, send ACDC the document numbers and titles. All documents are available in the Center or elsewhere in the University of Illinois Library. ACDC may be able to help you gain access, as long as they are within copyright guidelines. Shorter documents can often be scanned and sent electronically.
