IAMZ Library

The purpose of the IAMZ library is to support participants of IAMZ activities, facilitating access to documentation and bibliographical information related with the content of the training programmes. The current collection is fundamentally concerned with the following subjects:

  • Plant production
  • ​Animal production
  • Environment
  • Economics and marketing of agro-food products
  • Fisheries and aquaculture


The collection also includes other more general aspects of agriculture and natural resources. A large part of the library resources provides information on Mediterranean Region issues.

The IAMZ library is one of the libraries and documentation centres of the Campus of Aula Dei. Considering the existing collaboration between the Institutions on campus, acquisition of library resources is oriented towards books and other reference material other than journals, as numerous high-quality journals are held in the other libraries on campus.

The IAMZ library is likewise one of the libraries and documentation centres of the Mediterranean Agronomic Institutes of CIHEAM, which also offer on-line access to their holdings. IAMZ production is periodically introduced through the library into the AGRIS data base: issues of the journal Options Méditerranéennes edited in the IAMZ, Master of Science Theses and co-edited publications.
