The Plant Pathology Library is currently under construction and will reopen as the Borlaug Commons in Fall 2015. We are designing a flexible space ideally suited for student studying, group projects, and public engagement activities. The library materials will continue to be available at other UMN Libraries facilities. If you have any questions, please contact Jim Bradeen, Department of Plant Pathology Head.

Aurora Sporealis is the annual newsletter of the Department of Plant Pathology, published since 1924. Physical copies can be found in the departmental archives housed at the Plant Pathology Library, or you can search our digitized collections which are available online through the University Digital Conservancy.
