Turfgrass Information File

The Turfgrass Information File is a cooperative venture between Michigan State University and the United States Golf Association (USGA) Turfgrass Research Program. Turfgrass Information File (TGIF) indexes all types of works related to turfgrass culture including journals, monographs, fact sheets and pamphlets, images, and web documents. Most records in TGIF contain informative abstracts; some contain full text or are linked to web-accessible full text.

The databases had been freely available for a number of years but after upgrades and improvements the Turfgrass Information Center began charging for access. This is a focused database with many unique resources. The UMC Library is pleased to be able to provide access to this.
