AFE, NCSU Create Floriculture Search EngineSource: AFE

The American Floral Endowment has partnered with North Carolina State University to create the Floriculture InfoSearch Engine, a search engine for convenient and comprehensive access to floriculture literature, videos and presentations.

The American Floral Endowment (AFE) has partnered with North Carolina State University (NCSU) to create the Floriculture InfoSearch Engine, a search engine for convenient and comprehensive access to floriculture literature, videos and presentations. Growers and retailers now have online access to a comprehensive floriculture library containing information that may have been previously unavailable.

The website also contains a floriculture archive with materials from AFE, NCSU, scientific journals and trade publications, all of which are accessible and searchable through one website.

“We want to thank a couple of floriculture pack rats, George Staby and Harold Wilkins, for opening their files to us and several industry groups and magazines for allowing us to scan and enter their articles,” project leader and NCSU Horticultural Science Department Head John Dole, Ph.D. said. “This project is a wonderful example of what can be done when several groups work together to benefit the floriculture industry.”

The search engine will be continuously updated with additional information – dating as far back as the early 1800s – as it becomes available.

To visit the search engine site, go to floricultureinfosearch.ces.ncsu.edu.
