Waite Library and AgEcon Search
Our department is the home of Waite Library and AgEcon Search. Both have gift funds that are used to support and enhance ongoing programs and services.
- Waite Library provides reference services and research materials for the faculty and graduate students in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota. Waite Library is an important hub in our departmental community.
- AgEcon Search is a website developed and maintained at the University of Minnesota by Magrath Library and the Department of Applied Economics. It collects, indexes, and electronically distributes full text copies of scholarly research in the broadly defined field of agricultural economics, including sub disciplines such as agribusiness, food supply, natural resource economics, environmental economics, policy issues, agricultural trade, and economic development. AgEcon Search was selected as the 2007 recipient of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Science and Technology Section (STS) Oberly Award for Bibliography in the Agricultural or Natural Sciences.
