Library resources for research related to food systems and agriculture.


Food systems and the future of food are an emerging area of research in Geography and Environmental Science. There is new interest in topics like organic farming, local food, foodsheds, healthy soil and agricultural practices, sustainable agriculture, and sustainable food systems. 

This guide is an entry point to resources for topics in food research, with pages on finding articles, books, reports and data, and news. 

Quick Start: Finding Library Sources

Sustainable food systems cross many subject areas in the Library of Congress book classification system: Geography and Anthropology (G, GE, GF, GT), Social Sciences (H, HC, HD), Science (Q, QC, QH), and Agriculture (S, SB, SD, SF, SH). 

Use the library search engine (Library Search) to find books and articles on your topic.
