Tegucigalpa, Honduras, August 22, 2011 -- Leading agricultural university, Zamorano, has been selected as an official depository library by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). FAO selects national libraries, major research libraries or educational institutions with programs that encourage knowledge on nutrition, food and agriculture. Zamorano’s reputation as a leading agricultural university makes it an ideal choice.
The Wilson Popenoe Library Zamorano has one of the most comprehensive agricultural science collections in Latin America with over 18,000 books specializing in agricultural issues.
