Catalog Search (w/ Tips and Tricks)

Use the library's catalog to search for Culinary Arts materials.

Tips to keep in mind when searching:

1) Searching for "culinary arts" under the Key Word or Subject criteria will not always give you the best results.

2) Instead, if you are searching for culinary arts materials available in our library's collection, then use one or more of the of the following Subject Headings:

  • Food service -- safety measures
  • Diet
  • Cooking
  • Baking
  • Cake
  • Candy
  • Restaurant management
  • Vegetarian cooking
  • Barbeque cooking

3) As you explore our holdings, you'll discover more specific Subject Headings, such as: 

  • Cooking (Meat)
  • Diet therapy -- Recipes. Diabetes
  • Cooking, Mexican
  • Cooking, Italian

These help narrow the focus of the search and can be helpful if you have a specific topic or genre you're interested in exploring. If you want to know all of the Subject Headings for a particular item in our catalog, then click the Catalog Record tab in the item's record. You can click on one of the Subject Headings and it will bring up a list of all the other items in the library that have the same Subject Heading.

Important Note: Keep in mind that some of these subject searches will return mostly (if not all) ebooks and online resources. If you are only interested in book results, then select BOOK under the "Format" option on the Advanced Search page. This will get rid of all the ebook and online resource results and only provide you a list of books under the selected subject.
