  • Making the Most of The Time You Have: Communicating Technical Food Safety Science in a Short Amount of Time

    This webinar will cover how to communicate food safety science to a general audience in a short amount of time. Every scientist has to present complex concepts to a general audience, and understanding how to communicate these concepts clearly and concisely to the general public, a non-scientist co-worker, or even a supervisor is an invaluable skill. This skill is important especially in food safety where scientific discoveries can influence public policy, industry practices, and consumer food safety behaviors. Oral presentations and visuals can be effectively used to facilitate this communication. This webinar seeks to provide useful techniques and insights on how to use both forms of communication effectively to a non-technical audience.

  • Science Connections- Accessing Tools to Support Your Literature Review

    Recognizing the value of a well-written literature review is critical to food safety research.  USDA’s National Agriculture Library (NAL) and its Food Safety Research Information Office (FSRIO) supports students in food safety and food science, as well as the general public domestically and globally.  NAL also partners with the Agriculture Research Service (ARS), scientists and other food scientists to share their research and resources on their approaches and strategies using cutting edge tools to answer pressing research questions.  

    The USDA National Agriculture Library is one of the five national libraries across the United States.  It houses one of the world’s largest collections of agricultural data across eight (8) information centers. In addition, the digital resources include; DigiTop, AGRICOLA (AGRICultural On Line ­Access), NALDC (National Agricultural Library Digital Collections), PubAg, NALT (National Agricultural Library Thesaurus), NAL Internet Archive Collection, Special Collections, Ag Data Commons, Life Cycle Assessment, I5k Workspace @ NAL, VIVO, FoodData Central and the Dr. Dukes Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Database among its key tools.

    The FSRIO is the information center that supports the food science community by collecting, organizing & disseminating data.  Its information products include a food safety research projects database, a food safety research publications feed, and highlights the work of various food scientists in action. The organization also receives guidance from a working group of federal partners with food safety expertise across the USDA. 

    This forum will bring an awareness about the information products available to scientists.  In addition, participants will learn how to utilize search tools and customize their searches to navigate the resources described above.  They will also identify and find research articles that will benefit their work.  Search strategies and customizable tools will be shared as an introduction to the systematic literature review process that can be performed through NAL and FSRIO.
