Research and Information Services

Finding Sports Information

The Information Centre produces two current awareness bulletins:

  1. Quarterly Bulletin of Publications on Sport and Recreation - lists recent books and journal articles and includes brief abstracts.
  2. SportsInfo - SportsInfo is issued three times a year. The bulletins contain articles of interest to coaches and sports scientists.

Another useful source of information is the Value of Sport Monitor database which provides an online monitoring service of the most up-to-date reference sources and critical reviews of published research evidence on the contribution of sport to a range of broader social issues.

An excellent source of sporting websites is Intute, a free online service providing you with access to the best Web resources for education and research. The following link will take you to the section for Sport and Leisure Practice Websites

The Information Centre also houses a comprehensive collection of 600 books on coaching and sports science. The collection covers general works on coaching, training methods, strength training, nutrition, psychology, sports science, sports medicine and coaching individual sports.
