Abstract/Contents:"The Turfgrass Information Center, a unit of the Michigan State University Libraries, supports turf science, turf culture, turf education, and the management of turf facilities by collecting the published record of turfgrass, and structuring access to the print and electronic resources within that material. The online database produced by the Center, the Turfgrass Information File (TGIF), provides location and time-independent access to the literature via the World Wide Web, while the O. J. Noer Memorial Turfgrass Collection backs up the online index and acts as a physical archive for the discipline. The Center provides workspace for visiting scholars to use these resources, and hopes to aggressively support future scholarship in turf science, using techniques such as citation level web-linking, cooperative full-text archiving, and increasing the diversity of indexing structures and data-type links."
