Of the numerous themes present among books that our new to our collection – one predominant subject is Food. Whether it is a story of one family’s attempt to grow all of their own food (Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, call # S521.5 .A67 K56 2007) or a book that details a nutritionist’s journey through a supermarket as she decodes the world of food that average American consumers find themselves surrounded by (What to Eat call # RA784.N46 2007), we have them. Viewing the library’s catalog will reveal the wide breadth of topics that in some way relate to food. (Library Catalog)
The current display focuses primarily upon food in terms of nutrition, but other topics that are present include hunger in our community and around the globe, eating disorders and how they can be recognized, and guidelines published by the Food and Drug Administration that details the rules used to determine what is and is not an organic foodstuff.
The main goal of the Food for Thought display is to try to make the Fairfield University community aware of the resources that are available. We hope the display catches your eye, whets your appetite, and sparks your imagination. Bon appetit!
Please stop by the DiMenna-Nyselius Library to see the exhibit.
The library would like to thank Jeanne DiMuzio and Jocelyn Collen for the assistance of their time, effort, and materials. The creation of library displays is dependent upon help from all of the wonderful members of the Fairfield University community.
Reminder: The library sponsors its own displays and exhibits, and welcomes requests to provide temporary space for faculty, staff or students who wish to sponsor an exhibit. If you are interested in creating an exhibit for the Library, please call (203) 254-4000 ext. 2587 or e-mail Jackie Kremer.
