Access eBooks via major agricultural publisher collections:

Below is a list of electronic book collections with content in agriculture.

Tip: Some titles appear in the E-book databases before they are added to the library catalog. In some cases, searching in an E-book database, rather than the library catalog, will allow you to search within chapters or throughout the entire full text.

NOTE:  The excellent newer agricultural publisher, Burleigh Dodds, is available via the Taylor & Francis eBooks collection.  In addition, Taylor & Francis incorporates the extensive AGRICULTUREnetBASE collection.
