Find Ingredients

Search for books by keyword or subject heading here. 

-- When searching for ingredients, it is best to use a KEYWORD search.

-- If your ingredient is plant-based, it may be helpful to know the correct botanical name of your plant.  Wikipedia is a great place to find the botanical name of your plant (but don't cite it in your academic papers!); then search library sources using the botanical name of the plant.

The following books are available for checkout at the CMU Library.
