Extension and Experiment Station Publications
It can be very challenging to locate information about individual ISU Extension publications via the library website. Quick Search will list the name of the series, but it will not list individual publications within each series. The Parks Library Reference Collection has a List of Current Series, Serial Publications (Series Publications of Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service), published as of March 2004. It lists each publication from 1888-2004 (by title and publication number - and in some cases it will show an author name).

Abstract

The partial paralysis of the economic world today has thrust many new and strange problems upon the American farmer which require group action for solution. Such problems as deflation and inflation; banking reforms; international trade and credit readjustments; unequal tax burdens; national land use problems—these problems cannot be handled by the individual farmer. They require action by farmers as a group, or by the nation as a whole, for solution.

But not all of the problems require "group action.” Many of them must be handled on an individual farm basis. For instance— whether to rent more or less land, whether to raise more or less livestock, whether to feed this or that ration, how to handle this field and that field—these are individual farm management questions. They have been accentuated by the depression. And in the main they have to be dealt with by the individual farmer acting alone.
