A Case Library is a collection of cases arranged to allow easy, meaningful access for a user. This Library covers an array of turf problems encountered by golf course superintendents. The cases help fill gaps in a student's knowledge that are a result of their inexperience. Indices to the cases are based on the most salient factors in turf problem-solving. The case was structured to provide a framework that models the thought process users should go though when confronted with a problem as well as to provide the necessary information to make the case meaningful. The deliberate structure of the cases should assist students in using these experiences, drawing productive lessons from them, and encouraging them to build their own "mental libraries" using the framework provided. The cases reside in a database on an SQL server. Active Server Pages are used for easy access to the cases through the indices.
