Hot Topics: Sustainable Food Systems: Extend Your Research

Finding Books and Government Documents

Search the library catalog for books and government documents about sustainable agriculture, the food supply, and the environment. In addition to the books that we've suggested in this guide, there are many books in our collection that address the many subtopics and issues associated with sustainable food systems. 

The links below are subject searches in URSUS (the online catalog).  Change the "System Sorted" drop-down box to "Newest First" to find the most recent publication.

If the book you want is not at Fogler Library or available electronically, use the "Request" link to ask for it from another library - we'll quickly ship it here and you can check it out!
