Food Science: Finding Books
Locate books by searching the NCSU Libraries catalog. You can search
for books by author, title, subject, and keyword.
Standardized subject headings are used for subject searches. For example, to find books about food science, use the following subject
|Food industry and trade
Food -- Analysis
Food -- Composition
Food -- Research
Food -- Microbiology
You can also search for more specific subjects. For example:
If you know the title of a relevant book, you can search this title in the online catalog, look at the subject headings used to index
it, and then search those subject headings for related books on the topic.
If the NCSU Libraries does not have the book or journal that you need, you can do one of the following:
- Use the TRIPSaver/Interlibrary Loan service. (Ask at the Reference Desk for assistance.) TRIPSaver
provides books and photocopies of articles from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH), Duke University, and North
Carolina Central University (NCCU), usually within 2-3 days. If the item is not available through TRIPSaver, Interlibrary Services
will attempt to find the item from another participating library.
Printed journal article and book request forms for Interlibrary Loan/TRIPSaver are at the D. H. Hill Library Reference Desk and the
An electronic version of the forms is available from the NCSU Libraries Web page.
- Check out books from Duke, NCCU, or UNC-Chapel Hill.
NCSU students, faculty, and staff are eligible for borrowing privileges at the libraries of three other major universities
in the Triangle--Duke University, NC Central University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, all members of the
Triangle Research Libraries Network. A valid NCSU ID is required to establish privileges when visiting another TRLN library. You
may also be asked to access profile information in your NCSU library account (i.e.,"My Borrowing Record") using a PIN number. The list
of participating libraries and information such as hours of operation, directions, and circulation policies is available on the TRLN
web site. It is best to check this page for the policies of the library you are visiting before making a trip there.
