Finding Books in Mirlyn

Mirlyn is the online catalog for finding books & journals (not journal articles) in the U-M Library system. (Find more information here on using Mirlyn.) Books from the Taubman Health Sciences Library collection are stored off-site & can be retrieved using the "Get This" button.

Use these subject headings to search for books in Mirlyn, then refine your search results from options on the left.

  • diet / diet therapy / diet in disease
  • dietetics
  • dietetics handbooks
  • food / food habits / food preferences
  • human behavior - nutritional aspects
  • malnutrition
  • nutrition / nutrition assessment / nutrition disorders
  • nutritional support
  • nutrition policy - United States

Use the WorldCat database to find books outside the U-M Library system. Through our Interlibrary Loan service (which takes 5-10 business days), you can request books and articles that we don't own. They can be delivered to libraries (including Taubman) or to several locations in the hospital. 

E-Book Collections

Not all of our electronic books are listed in Mirlyn.  Search these collections of e-books to find more titles.
