Online Technical Library

The full text of current ASABE text and reference books (and many older ones) is available on the ASABE Online Technical Library. To view a list of the titles click on the Publications Included button on the site and page down to the textbook and monograph sections. You will find other publication categories listed that may be useful as teaching resources. If your university has a site license agreement with ASABE, you are authorized to duplicate (in print or electronic format) any of the material on the site for classroom use without additional permissions. This permission does not apply if you are only able to access the documents using your membership login.

Teaching Material Project

A project was launched in the spring of 2009 to identify courses and topic areas that lack adequate teaching materials and to facilitate development of needed materials (such as complete texts, modules, auxiliary materials, lab exercises, etc.). A summary of the survey results was compiled. Ongoing efforts are underway to coordinate the development of quality teaching materials to meet those needs. The cotton processing module was complete and is online in our Technical Library.
