BIO 111 - Intro to Nutrition: Reference Sources

Find sources on nutrition.

Reference Books

The following books are located in the REFERENCE COLLECTION of the library and stay in the collection at all times. You can use these in the library.

Why choose a reference source?

Reference sources (encyclopedias, dictionaries, almanacs, atlases) give concise introductions to topics.  Use them to:


      • explore topics for research;
      • get background information;
      • explain unfamiliar ideas.

Reference sources are available at the MCC Library in both print (left) and electronic format (below).
