Hello PLS 103 students!

This resource was created to assist you with your PLS 103 assignments as well as provide a basic understanding of finding and using information effectively generally. You will find links for all of the databases I covered in class as well as much more. Please feel free to contact me or any other personnel at the Agricultural Information Center with questions you may have. Good luck this semester!
