URSUS - the online catalogue of the University of Maine System, contains a wealth of information of food science, nutrition, and related topics. Searching is by author, title, keyword, subject, and call number. Through URSUS you can find books, conference, symposium, and workshop proceeding volumes, University of Maine theses and dissertations, and state, federal, Canadian, and other international documents. Material is catalogued by Library of Congress Subject Headings. The following subject headings may get you started in your search:
diet, food additives, food adulteration and inspection, food analysis, food composition, food contamination, food handling, food labeling, food law and legislation, food microbiology, food preservation, nutrition policy, nutrition study and teaching, nutrition surveys
A good way to search URSUS is by keyword. A keyword search searches author, title, series, subject, and contents notes. Using the keyword search option you can combine various keywords together using AND, OR, and parentheses. If you wanted to find information on diet or nutrition in Maine or Vermont your search might look like this:
(diet* or nutrition*) and child*
where * is a truncation symbol which will search diet, diets, dietary, nutrition, nutritional, child and children.

The records have been divided into two parts: references from 1975 to 1996 and from 1996 to present. Updated monthly.
BIOSIS Previews, worldwide in scope, indexes the literature of the biological and biomedical sciences. The premier database in the biological sciences, subject coverage includes agriculture, biochemistry, bioengineering, botany, ecology, food science, genetics, microbiology, nutrition, pharmacology, and zoology. Approximately 5,500 serial publications (see Biosis Previews serials list) as well as books, proceedings and meeting abstracts, technical reports, review papers, and patents are indexed. There are 58 separate data fields that can be searched including author, title, publication source, organism, concepts, super taxa, publication type, author affiliation, and abstract keyword. Searches can be limited to review articles.
