A great opportunity for you and your students....

Attention Illinois Ag Teachers
We have made an important change to the way your subscription to the Ag Ed Library (  or diretly from the right panel on works. This change will allow for greater access by you and your students to the E-units in the Library. We have reduced the security setting, which will allow you to:
  1. Access the E-units in the Library from any computer
  2. Enable up to 20 computers at any location(s) to access the E-units using your log-in and access codes.
Now when you log-in, you will be able to open the E-units without using the Virtual Vault Security software. Instead you will have access to standard PDFs.
In connection with this change, you will be able to save the E-units to your school’s network. Once saved to the network, your students can access the E-units without having to go through the log-in process using your email and password.  (Saving the pdfs to your school's network is a much better option than giving out your password for use in a school lab situation.  The same for home school students who can have access from the school's website.)
These changes are being made to provide greater exposure to the Ag Ed Library by your students. Remember, currently there is at least one E-unit for every lesson plan on the Central Core and BSAA CDs. Further, E-units for the Horticulture Cluster lesson plans are currently under development.
If you need a refresher on how to log into the Ag Ed Library, just click on the link below for detailed instructions:
