Dietetics and Nutrition: Find Books

This guide will help you find reliable information on dietetics and nutrition.

Books in the STLCC Libraries

Here are a few books showing what's available in the library collection.


Search the STLCC Library Catalog

Search for books using St. Louis Community College's Catalog.


Catalog Search Help

Begin in the STLCC Catalog to find books in the library. The two basic methods for searching are the keyword and the subject searches. The subject search is somewhat misleading--it only searches for subjects as defined by the Library of Congress. Because most library users are not familiar with the official Library of Congress Subject Headings, it is often a good idea to begin with a keyword search. Some examples of keyword searches include

  1. dietetics
  2. diet* and diabetes
  3. diet* AND health
  4. food AND sanitation
  5. nutrition AND child*
  6. recipes and middle east*

NOTE: The asterisk (*) truncates a term and will retrieve all forms of the word that follow the truncation symbol. For example, diet* will retrieve diet, dietetics, dietician, etc. The asterisk can also be used as a wildcard for an unknown letter, as in wom*n, etc.

Results from your keyword searches will help you identify appropriate subject headings. Below are just a few examples of subject headings you will find in the STLCC Catalog.

  1. Children -- Nutrition
  2. Cooking -- 219 related LC Subjects
  3. Cooking, Italian
  4. Diabetes -- Diet therapy -- Recipes
  5. Diet therapy
  6. Dietetics
  7. Food service management
  8. Menus
  9. Nutrition (note: there are 48 related subject headings)
  10. Quantity cooking
