• Open TEEAL (The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library) funded by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (2013-2017)

ITOCA in collaboration with Cornell University’s Mann Library (USA) received an award from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to incorporate the use of scientific agricultural information by faculty and students in agricultural colleges and universities in two sub-Saharan African and two Southeast Asian countries in order to promote curriculum enhancement, improved research and extension quality, and short- and long-term agricultural development (2013-2017). The original 3-year grant was extended by six months to December 2017. The purpose of the OpenTEEAL project was to improve the effectiveness of agricultural research, extension, policy and education through enhanced access to and effective use of the international and local agricultural knowledge-base. By adding open access content to the existing journal content in TEEAL, particularly the output of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the project aimed to expand the available agricultural knowledge-base, particularly in institutions that do not have robust access to the Internet.
