JWU Subject Sites

October 23, 2008

 The Johnson & Wales library has a web page which offers links to internet resources by subject. This can be extremely useful for finding valid information on the Web that has been vetted by a JWU librarian. You can browse by subject and then follow the link to a variety of internet resources that may be useful during your research process.

 

The direct address to the JWU Subject Sites page is:

http://library.jwu.edu/research/websites/index.htm

 

Or you can find it by going to the main library webpage at:

http://library.jwu.edu

>Then go to Research Resources and then click on Subject Sites.

 

For example, suppose you are looking for culinary resources. You can click on the link to Culinary & Food-related websites. Here you will find links to pages which cover a wide variety of cookery, cuisine, food industry and nutrition subjects: Baking, beverages (alcoholic/non-alcoholic), career information, cookbook reviews, cookery, ethnic/regional cuisine, food industry, food safety, menus, newsgroups, nutrition, professional associations, recipe archives/indexes, restaurants, specific foods, and tables (conversion/measurements).

 

Or perhaps, you are looking for information on International Business Etiquette. This page offers a variety of topics dealing the cultural aspects of conducting international business and general advice about etiquette expectations abroad.

 

Check it out! You won’t be sorry!

 

**Of course, don’t forget to always keep a critical eye on web-based information if you follow links from a web page as it may lead you outside of that website! You want to be sure to evaluate any website source you use by adhering to some basic guidelines:

  • Check out the author. What type of credentials do they have?
  • Is there a bibliography?
  • Does the funding source or site of the research imply a bias?
  • Who is the intended audience?
