The Food Bibliography is an on-line resource providing a growing data base of bibliographic materials for researchers in the field of food history and, more generally, food studies.  It is meant to help ensure the circulation of information to the increasing number of scholars working in these fields. The bibliography (presently version 3.4) contains some 20,880 records in 8 different languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese and Dutch). Special attention has been devoted to areas that are not usually covered by on-line library catalogues: articles appearing in journals, papers printed in conference proceedings, etc.
