CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State University Extension Service is now delivering educational materials through an online publications and multimedia catalog. Just launched, the system lets Extension customers purchase materials ranging from booklets about finding in-home care for elderly family members to DVDs describing exemplary conservation efforts by Oregon landowners.

"The real key to this system is the ease of use," said Evie Engel, one of the leaders of the catalog development, and Extension publishing specialist. "Customers can use a credit card to order publications online and have them delivered to their homes within a week.

"There already are about 1,200 publications online, and we're continuing to add more each week," said Engel.

In order to help customers have a better feel for what they are purchasing, each catalog entry includes a brief description. Many items can be viewed or printed without charge.

The OSU Extension Service focuses on economic development, youth and family development, natural resource conservation and management and leadership development for all Oregonians, and is recognized as one of the United State's top-five Land-Grant University Extension systems.
