Got a question about the Library, finding information, referencing, literature searching or using EndNote/Mendeley? Or about study skills such as writing assignments/lab reports, time management, using references in your work or preparing for exams?
Then come along to the Library and ASK drop-in for Food and Nutritional Sciences. Your librarian and ASK Advisor will be on hand to discuss your question.
When? Tuesdays 13:00-14:00 term-time only
Where? On Blackboard Collaborate - just follow the link below.
The following databases cover most aspects of food reformation and are a good starting point for your research. See also the specific resources listed under each tab in this guide.
Search Summon using the box below to find online journal articles, book chapters, standards and other publications covered by the Library's subscriptions. You should be able to access everything you find on Summon.
The Enterprise catalogue is a good starting point for finding books on a topic. Keep your search quite general, as you are searching just the titles of books.
If you are on campus you will be able to access most e-journals and e-books, and some databases, without entering a username and password because your IP address identifies you as being at the University of Reading.
For any that require a login, see the Off-campus tab.
When you are off-campus you will need to login to identify yourself as a member of the University of Reading to gain access to our protected databases, e-books and e-journals.
Your login details
You login in the same way as for Blackboard - via Microsoft. Just enter your University username followed by @student.reading.ac.uk (e.g. email@example.com) and your password. If this is the first time you have logged in via this method when off-campus you will be asked to complete a Multi-Factor Authentication. For more information see:
