Finding Library Books
on the Library Gateway. If you have a specific book in mind,
search by Title or Author; if not, try Subject (assigned subject headings) or Keyword (a word that appears in the
title or elsewhere). You may want to
browse virtually in the Bowdoin catalog: look for additional headings under
“Subject,” or added "Tags" or "Similar Books" when you have
a record on the screen.
The call numbers for books about Food and Food production will vary a great deal, so use the Library Catalog first and get some sample call numbers. When you find the right book, take a look on nearby shelves and you should find some additional relevant items, but don’t limit yourself to just one area. Some subject headings to try include Food and many sub-categories, e.g. Food Religious Aspects; Food Social Aspects; Beverages; and names of specific types of food or products.
Some sources will be located in Hatch Science Library, so check the location in the catalog.
