Getting the Article

UM Links

UMLinks This button is in most article databases. Use it to find the articles's full text online, if the libraries have access.

It also searches the library catalog to see what we have of the title in paper format.

If we don't have access, it links you to Interlibrary Loan - a free service to get it elsewhere.

Library Databases for Extension Staff

UMass Extension staff have full access to the Libraries' services and resources. For example, you can use these subscription databases from anywhere using your OIT username and password.

Use databases for finding articles from journals, magazines, newspapers, and other reliable sources. If you need information on other areas, though there are dozens of other choices. If you need recommendations or help to use them, don't hesitate to contact us.

Ag Extension publications by state

Each state has an Agricultural Extension Service, and publishes materials for their specific audiences. These documents can be hard to locate, but many of them can at least be identified using the Agricola database, which is the catalog of the U.S.D.A.'s National Agricultural Library in Beltsville, MD.

States have some publications available for purchase on an Extension website. These websites are not consistent or maintained reliably.
