The Peanut Institute has launched a searchable research library to serve as the hub of all peanut nutrition research publications. The resource gives anyone instant access to the latest and most noteworthy research in the nutrition field.

The database will allow users to search the library by topic, year of publication, journal, article title, study authors or keywords. A summary of publications will be provided, as well as links to the original studies online.

Research Director Samara Sterling launched the library and expects that by August 2019 it will have at least 250 publication summaries. Developing the research library is a continuous process, both of identifying and summarizing research articles, and of identifying the most user-friendly database design methods, Sterling said.
