You can also search the library's Ebscohost database for articles about the Slow Food Movement. Online resources like Ebscohost are common to libraries, and can provide you with more options for researching your topic.
What is an Ebscohost database, and what is it used for?
To get materials for your research. Ebscohost provides a platform for searching online content that is quite often not freely available on the Internet at large. Databases can have journal articles, books, newspapers, or other types of documents. Each database may have more than one kind of material – journal articles AND books, for example. Sometimes databases contain a copy of the document that you can read online (this is called full-text), and sometimes databases have only a description of an item, meaning you still have to locate the item yourself (this is called a citation). If you need help accessing an article, please see us for assistance.
Why use databases?
Lots of reasons – let’s consider a few.
1. You will get materials that are not available for free on the internet.
2. You can search a subject specific database – meaning we have may have databases that deal only with the subject areas in which you are interested, be that Native Studies, or History, or Newspapers, or whatever. This can help you do research much more quickly.
3. To find specific types of materials – books titles or reviews, articles from magazines, scholarly (ie. "peer-reviewed") articles, and so on. Journal articles and newspaper articles are not usually found in the standard library catalogue.
For example: in the Advanced Search screen, using the search terms "slow food" and Subject Terms in the dropdown menu yields results like these:
"Slow Food Revisited" from the Journal of Agricultural and Food Information
"Slow" from Natural Life magazine
"Savouring the Seasons" from Native Peoples Magazine
"How Slow Can You Go?" from Current Teen Health
and many more.
