Functional Nutrition: Home

Fall 2020 session with Torie Scott, PCC librarian

Welcome to PCC Library

PCC Library buildings are closed in Fall term 2020, but librarians are available 7 days/week and the Library website will connect you to many valuable resources for your course work. The purpose of this page is to introduce you to the PCC Library, as well as free resources on the Web, in order to help you gain skills in how to find evidence-based information regarding nutrition.

On the Concept Tutorials tab above, you will find several videos with basic research concepts.

On the Published Articles tab above, you will find links to PCC Library databases with articles on nutrition and other health-related topics.

These materials were prepared for PCC's Functional Nutrition class; feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments.
Torie Scott, Reference & Instruction Librarian, PCC Library
