STRI Makes it easy to access Turfgrass Literature
Back issues of STRI's magazine "International Turfgrass Bulletin" are now available on-line for easy access via STRI's website, www.stri.co.uk.
Content can be sourced from 1951 to 2004, right back to the original title, the Sports Turf Bulletin, first published in 1951.
This facility has been made possible through a joint venture between STRI and the Turfgrass Information Centre (TIC) based at Michigan State University in the USA. The TIC contains the world's largest publicly available collection of turfgrass educational material. They hold over 100,000 records in the database, the Turfgrass Information File (TGIF).
Last year this joint venture successfully completed an on-line database to access back issues of STRI's annual journal, "The Journal of Turfgrass and Sports Surface Science", dating back to 1929. This is the premier turfgrass research journal in Europe.
Clifford Haka, Director of the Michigan State University Libraries, stress that,
"This is a wonderful example of how the research and information gathering process can be simplified. We are delighted to be able to add full-text access to the Bulletin to our Turfgrass Information File."
STRI spokesperson, Anne Wilson, Head of External Affairs, noted that this would provide an enormous benefit to STRI subscribers and a welcome added bonus to their subscription.
