HNFE 2014 Research Resources: Selecting a Database

Virginia Tech's University Libraries gives you access to nearly 750 databases.  How do you know where to start?  

Check out the HNFE Subject Guide.  It will point you to the best databases for Human Nutrition, Food, & Exercise research at VT.  For introductory research, I recommend VT's Discovery Search and a few disciplinary databases:  PubMed, CINAHL, or Web of Science. If your question is agriculture-related, I would also suggest CAB Direct. Still not sure about which database(s) are best for your research? Try browsing a few subject guides, or look through the full research database list
