If you’re a golfing fan, you may have often admired the lush golf courses and wondered how they keep the grass so green and perfect. No doubt that lots of research into turfgrass and its maintenance played an important part. A topic which interests not only the sports industry but also landscape architecture, horticulture, parks and recreation, and environmental policy.
Researchers and students in these areas have a valuable resource in the Turfgrass Information File (TGIF) database – a bibliographic database exclusively dedicated to indexing turfgrass literature. Jointly designed by the United States Golfing Association Turfgrass Research Committee and the Michigan State University (MSU) Libraries in 1983; it is now managed by the Turfgrass Information Center, a division of MSU Libraries.
