AFRE 300: Public Policy Issues in the Agri-Food System: Readings

Spring 2022. Dr. Michael Olabisi

Changes are coming!

Fall 2020 reunited many of us on campus, but we still have many online-only classes and situations. The MSU Libraries follows the mandates for social distancing and mask-wearing set by the University. The Library homepage will provide guidance for library hours, entry and policies. If you have concerns or need something you can't find, you can email me or, for quicker service, use the Ask a Librarian options. This semester the Libraries will be updating our search interface for all materials. We hope the change will make locating items easier and faster. If you need assistance, please contact us.
