The library has many resources on the topic of obesity and health.
Many links are provided for you by starting here: navigating to the Library Research guide (see the link below)
- Start with books (there are ebooks available as well), and the encyclopedic databases Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) or Encyclopedia Britannica and gather some keywords and issues to focus on.
- Next, move into SIRS, Opposing Viewpoints or CQ Researcher, and look for evidentiary newspapers and substantive magazines/periodicals,
- Finally, you are ready for EBSCO or Academic One File: using a combination of your larger topic and combine it with an issue of your choice. For example: "obesity" AND poverty. Break up your search string into single words: do not type in sentence. Continue to add or refine your search with the vocabulary you have collected as you've researched.
Lastly come in and talk to a librarian: this is a VERY BIG TOPIC and we are experts at narrowing and developing your content.
