Alverno & SWITCH Libraries

The SWITCH libraries have a TON of info on vegetarianism and veganism. Cookbooks, policy & ethics, general guides...there's enough here to keep you busy for a long time. Try these searches to get you started:

Have title recommendations? Send purchase requests to Cat Jones.

Other Libraries

Remember we can always get you materials through InterLibrary Loan (ILL) for free. First check TOPCAT for the item you want. If it's not available through SWITCH, submit an ILL request here.

Also remember to check with the public library. It can be a great way to test out cookbooks before you commit to buying one. Search the MPL catalog here.

Labels To Look For

Look for these labels on food, cosmetics, household products and more.

No logo? Don't despair!

Lots of foods and products are "accidentally vegan", meaning they didn't set out to be vegan, but it just turns out that they are. When in doubt:

  • Check the ingredient list
  • Google the product, Google the company
  • Download the app "Is It Vegan?" and scan the barcode (it's free!)
