This guide will aid researchers interested in collection materials related to food, cooking, alcohol, and bartending. Food and drink are often pillars of a culture and community, and as such LSU Libraries Special Collections want to highlight some of the relevant books, manuscripts, and even audio-visual materials. Further, this guide will provide insight into the search terms best used for researchers to dive further.
Each page of this guide will hold a brief listing of recommended key subject headings for browsing the library's online catalog. To use these in a search, follow one of the three steps below.
These subject terms will not be an exhaustive list but will represent most common options for each topic. The subject terms are organized to be as specific as possible relating to each topic. Adjustments to specificity can be made by adjusting or dropping the final phrase.
A full listing of top level subject terms is available through the Library of Congress.
