As I’ve written in other blog posts, I knew that OSU was an agricultural college, yet it seems I continue to learn more and more about how deeply ingrained farming is in the university. When working on collecting information for the Farming and Agricultural tab for the LibGuide, there were A LOT of resources, from personal documents, to Extension Services pamphlets, and then to science surrounding farming (and all that entails.)

It’s also incredible to see the titles of the rare books we have that span centuries, detailing different farming techniques and plenty more related to agriculture. So far, this has been a great term looking into all things food related, and it makes me appreciate even more the land in Oregon, as well as the incredible research done (and has been done) here at OSU!
