Article on the development of an electronic assistive technology catalogue for use by farmers, ranchers, and agricultural workers. The Breaking New Ground Resource Center has been developing resources for farmers and ranchers with physical disabilities for over twenty years. This has included two extensive catalogues of appropriate assistive technology that is commercially available, or has been designed and fabricated by individual craftsmen for agricultural workers. Over 2,000 hard copies of volumes one and two of "Agricultural Tools, Equipment, Machinery, and Buildings for Farmers and Ranchers with Physical Disabilities" have been distributed nationwide to consumers and rehabilitation professionals. A third revision of this resource, "The Toolbox," is now available in both print and electronic versions to broaden distribution, increase accessibility, and enhance the quality of the contents.
