Treesearch – a USDA forestry database

Reading an article in the latest Science & Technology Libraries by Bradley Brazzeal and Robert Fowler on “Patterns of Information Use in Graduate Research in Forestry: A Citation Analysis of Master’s Theses at Mississippi State University”, I discovered a reference to a great government forestry database called Treesearch.  It is an online database to publications (articles, books and book chapters, and conference papers) by USDA forestry researchers.  All of this stuff is freely available in full text format (Adobe Acrobat PDF) from this site because it is all in the public domain.  You can search by keyword, author, and title, as well as limiting by date.  The URL for the site is http://www.treesearch.fs.fed.us/

This is relevant to Paper Engineering due to the number of references dealing with wood and the structure of wood.
