Dietetics and Nutrition

Use this guide to find and evaluate information and resources related to dietetics and nutrition.

Use the STLCC Libraries Videos search tool to find videos and films

STLCC Libraries carry quite a few videos, including many on the topic of careers. Some videos, especially popular movies but also some on topics such as careers, may be requestable from campus to campus, or they may be available in a streaming version from a database, indicated like this: STLCC online access

Other materials (marked with a notation such as "LIB USE ONLY) are not requestable and must be viewed on the campus where they are housed.

To find videos on careers, select the Videos search tool from the STLC​C Libraries website. You may also choose to go to individual databases, using the links provided for Films on Demand, Kanopy, or use the Streaming Media Guide. Need Help? Use the Ask a Librarian icon on the STLCC Libraries website.

Kanopy Film Database

The Kanopy database contains many streaming instructional and feature films on food.

Films on Demand (FOD) Database

The Films on Demand (FOD) database contains thousands of films and film clip segments on many topics. Films can be viewed in their entirety or by segment, making them ideal for presentations. You can create a private and free user account to keep track of favorites and playlists. Films on Demand contains many films and film segments related to dietetics and nutrition, including the following titles. Select the FOD icon above to start. Search by title to locate the film for streaming. Only STLCC students, faculty and staff have acccess to Films on Demand.

Once logged into the database, view videos by category Family & Consumer Sciences or do a keyword search such as nutrition or diet to see a range of available videos. Searches can be limited to video titles or segments.

YouTube Nutrition Video Clips

You may be able to find many useful videos about dietetics and nutriton using YouTube. Try searching with a keyword such as "dietetics" or  "nutrition" with a phrase such as "why study nutrition" or "case study." Searching with the phrase "American Dietetic Association" may yield interesting results.

NOTE: YouTube is a classic example of one of the strengths and weaknesses of the Internet, which is the fact that anyone can post videos. As such, the quality and scholarly acceptability of videos varies greatly. There may be useful video clips on YouTube, but you must EVALUATE them for authority and relevance. Before referencing any material from YouTube (or other video sites on the Internet) in a paper or using a clip in a presentation, though, it is highly advisable to check with your instructor concerning the acceptability of the video for the assignment.
