Books on bamboo listed at the National Agricultural Library

Promoting the Beauty and Utility of Bamboo


Craig O’Donnell has done a search of books on bamboo in the catalog of the National Agricultural Library, which is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

To use the online catalog, you must be able to run a telnet session from your browser via a “helper application” like NCSA Telnet. Here is a simple list of titles, keyword “bamboo”. You may be able to find these materials at another library.

The NAL will participate in Interlibrary Loan, or send photocopies of materials (for a fee). See their home page for more information.

The following text file containa the result of the query. You can download the file and use any text editor or word processor to search. Each entry has a “subject” line so you could search for “pulp” or “fly rod” and find the books where that is contained in the subject line.

In my browser, when I click on one of the files, a new window opens and the file is downloaded and displayed in that window. After the download is complete I can select “Save” from a menu and the file will be saved on disk.

If you aren’t successful using this method, please send me a message (see below) and I’ll try to figure out how else I can make this available. Please describe how it didn’t work.

The Text file

If you would like to try searching for yourself, click on the National Agricultural Library and search for bamboo. In the future, this would probably bring up more citations.
