Food Science Resources: Finding Books

Suggested resources for research in the area of food science and technology.

Searching the Library Catalog

To locate books on specific topics, search the Library Catalog. Begin with a keyword search which allows the use of everyday terminology and the combination of two or more concepts (e.g. "food and fortification"; "HACCP and poultry"); click on a title of interest and follow the subject hotlinks in the cataloging record to locate other books on the same topic. Use the truncation symbol to retrieve alternate forms of a word (e.g., food contamina* will find food contamination, food contaminants; food label* will find food label, food labels, food labelling).
