Alternative Farming Systems Information Center

The Alternative Farming Systems Information Center (AFSIC) is one of several topic-oriented Information Centers at the National Agricultural Library (NAL). The Library, located in Beltsville, Maryland, is the foremost agricultural library in the world, and is one of four U.S. national libraries along with the Library of Congress, the National Library of Medicine, and the National Library of Education. AFSIC is supported, in part, by USDA’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program.

AFSIC specializes in locating and accessing information related to alternative cropping systems including sustainable, organic, low-input, biodynamic, and regenerative agriculture. AFSIC also focuses on alternative crops, new uses for traditional crops, and crops grown for industrial production.

Our staff create publications that focus on specific topics of current interest. Most AFSIC publications are available through our Web site at http://afsic.nal.usda.gov/publications. Books, articles, and videocassettes cited in AFSIC publications are not available directly from AFSIC.
For information on how to obtain these materials, please read NAL Document Delivery Information at http://www.nal.usda.gov/nal-services/request-library-materials.

Specific topics not covered by AFSIC publications and Web pages may be addressed, on request, by AFSIC reference staff through brief, complimentary database searches.
