A record for an article from the International Food Policy Research Institute is the 30 millionth record to be harvested to the WorldCat database via the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway. The WorldCat record links to the open-access article, “Diversification in Indian Agriculture toward High-Value Crops: The Role of Small Farmers,” written by two IFPRI researchers, P.K. Joshi and Devesh Roy, and partners Amit Thorat and Pratap Singh Birthal.

comScore releases ‘2013 Latin America Digital Future in Focus’

The Latin America online population grew faster than any other global region in the past year, rising 12 percent to 147 million visitors. Other key insights from the report include:

  • Consumers in Latin America spent 10 hours online per month on social networking sites, doubling the global average time spent; five of the top 10 most engaged markets with social content worldwide are located in Latin America.
  • Mobile phones and tablets continue to account for a growing amount of digital traffic. Of the four Latin American markets analyzed, Mexico led the region with 13.9 percent of all Web-based page views consumed beyond the personal computer, mostly on smartphones and tablets.
  • Internet users in Argentina are the most likely in Latin America to view online video content, with more than 95 percent of its Internet population doing so in March 2013.
