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 purpose of this bulletin is to provide authentic information on the selection, preparation and utilization of fruits and vegetables preserved under frozen food locker systems in Iowa. The recommendations are based on investigations under locker plant conditions conducted over a period of 4 years by the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station. In order that the products would be comparable to those obtained by using ordinary household equipment, preparation and processing was done on a small scale in a kitchen laboratory to simulate home conditions.2 Careful attention was given to details of necessary measures preparatory to freezing as well as to subsequent procedures. The methods herein described have been found to yield frozen products of excellent quality. The information is not intended as a guide for the commercial packing of frozen products. It is applicable most specifically to Iowa grown fruits and vegetables.
