Library Resources: Sport Studies: Home

This Libguide contains information about resources available through the Xavier Library that will help you with your Sport Studies research.


This guide is specifically customized for your Sport Studies and Exercise Science courses. It provides all the links, resources, and tutorials you need to get started on any research project. Make a list of your questions and concerns as you navigate what's here, then schedule an appointment with me (or send an email) so we can talk about them. I am available throughout any stage of the research process, whether you are still narrowing a topic down or wrestling with a mountain of citations.  

Before We Meet:

Try an initial search on your topic using SEARCH@XU. This will search (almost) everything the Library has access to in one fell swoop: books, articles, streaming media, and more. You can limit your results by type, publication date, language, and location (for physical collections). 

Library Tutorials

The Library offers a self-paced, online tutorial called XU.tutor that provides a general introduction to library research. Module topics include developing a research question, searching a database, understanding copyright and plagiarism, and evaluating websites.
