Turfgrass Information File (TGIF)

The Turfgrass Information Center ™ (TIC) at Michigan State University contains the most comprehensive collection of turfgrass educational materials publicly available in the world. TIC has over 100,000 records in its primary database (TGIF-the Turfgrass Information File). A specialized unit of the MSU Libraries, the Turfgrass Information Center™ operates under the guidance and support of the TIC Advisory Council, a volunteer group of industry representatives. Please note: The Turfgrass Information Center™ does not diagnose, recommend, interpret, synthesize, evaluate, or advise on turfgrass matters. We deal with the turfgrass literature, and provide access to information resources, both online and offline.
