Search CURA Publications Catalog

The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

 

Search for reports, monographs, CURA Reporter articles, and other publications stemming from CURA-supported projects.

  • For search terms entered in the Search full text box, only publications matching all terms will be found. Use fewer terms to broaden your search, or more terms to narrow it.
  • The optional Program and Keywords fields can help further refine your search.
  • Search results will be displayed below the search form.

Sustainable Farming Association: Making a Difference for Farmers in Minnesota. 2001 Vatovec, Christine.

The Sustainable Farming Association (SFA) of Minnesota is a nonprofit, farmer-to-farmer information sharing network. A graduate student in conservation biology in the College of Natural Resources conducted an assessment of SFA 's membership. The association will use this information to develop a database, identify potentially beneficial relationships between members (e.g., between farmers who produce organic grain and farmers who feed organic grain to livestock), and learn where to focus its energies and resources.

Itasca County Resorts and Tourism. 2002 Burns, Andrea.

Since the nineteenth century, the lumber and mining industries have provided the main source of economic revenue for Itasca County. However, the Itasca County Historical Society felt that resorts and tourism may have played just as significant a role in the economic, social, and cultural development of Grand Rapids and the rest of Itasca County as did the lumber and mining industries during their heydays. Indeed, a significant portion of Itasca County's current revenue is drawn from the resort and tourist industry.
