  2. Agencies • American Agricultural Service (AMS) • Economic Research Service (ERS) • National Agricultural Statistical Service (NASS) • World Agricultural Outlook Board (WAOB) • Foreign Agricultural Service? (FAS) 2005-2006

  3. History • 1993 gopher/ftp server (ERS) USDA Economics System • 1995 World Wide Web (NASS and WAOB Join) Became the USDA Economics and Statistics System • 1999 Highest Distinction, Secretary of Agriculture Honor Award • 1999 National Association of Colleges and University Business Officers Award • 2003 New e-mail Service (AMS) Became the USDA Economics Statistics and Market Information System • 2004 - NASS Historical Reports Scanning • 2004 – Redesign Effort

  4. Use • AMS Reports – Over 600,000 Sent in July • Other Data and Reports – about 3 Million Downloaded or Sent Per Year • Generates the Second Largest Amount of Traffic at Cornell • Support: Mann Reference

  5. Timeliness • Files ftp’d to Mann – 5-10 Minute Turn Around Time • NASS and WAOB Precise Release Times • Lockdown

  6. New Additions: AMS • AMS 1500 Titles • E-mail Only • Sent out Automatically • More Secure Sign-up • From 6 Branches of the AMS (Cotton, dairy, Fruit & vegetable, Livestock & Seed, Tobacco)

  7. New Additions: NASS Scanning • Reports Go Back to the 19th Century • Scanned in Batches • Filed at NASS by Year Rather than Title • Complex Title and Report Changes

  8. Why Redesign? • Based on 1995 web design • Manual Upload and html • Indexed but not a database • Limited Metadata • Limited Searching Capabilities • Sheer Number of Titles • Browse Categories Based on ERS • Two e-mail systems • Possible Addition of Another Agency • Manual Calendar Entry • Manual email List Distribution • File Relationships are Difficult • AMS Not Integrated With the Rest of the System • Agencies’ Ability to Change Report Titles etc. • …and more

  9. Metadata Considerations • Calendar • Report Check In • Email Notices • Searching • Journal Title Changes • Other Issues • Geographical • Commodity • Charts and Graphs
