Fast Food Nation is a good place to start. If you found the book in the PILOT online catalog, you may have noticed that it has several subject terms assigned to it, such as "Fast Food Restaurants" and "Convenience Foods". Try entering those terms as a "Subject Heading Search" in the PILOT catalog. There are other items with those headings. Another way to find sources is to use Fast Food Nation itself. The online catalog shows that there are at least 6 pages of bibliographical references at the end of the book (pages 356-361). These are the sources that author of Fast Food Nation consulted as he wrote the book. Many of these source could work for your paper as well. Just check the PILOT catalog to see if we have any of them. Another source of references that you should consider are the various online databases we make available and the journal articles included in them . The Library has over 150 databases to pick from. You can find these by going to the Library Home Page (www.iup.edu/library)and clicking on "Article Databasses". This will give you an alphabetical list of all the resources available. Just select the one you want from the list. I would suggest that you look at: Academic Search Complete, InfoTrac OneFile, Wilson OmniFile, Health Source : Consumer Edition, Health Source : Nursing/Academic Edition, CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health Literature), and MEDLINE. These should give you all kinds of references and, in many cases, the full text of the articles are available online.
