About Us

Since its inception in October 1999, the Plant and Soil Sciences e-Library (PASSeL) project has grown to become the site you see today. The free, public resources on PASSeL are created in various ways but most commonly through grant funded collaborations between academic institutions. As part of these collaborations, scientists and educators work together to develop reliable resources which aim to support learning and science literacy.

Public academic institutions have a mission to provide unbiased science information based on, and informed by, state-of-the-art research in their education and outreach programs. Our team of collaborators continues to develop resources to meet the needs of all types of learners including advanced professionals, adult learners interested in continuing education, students pursuing academic degrees as well as the general public.
