Physiotherapy and Sports & Exercise Science Resources
Happy Friday everyone. We have promoted our Physiotherapy and Sports & Exercise Science Resources this week. You might have seen our book display at Sighthill Library Campus. Or our digital signage slides promoting different resources the past few days. Or even our social media posts. If not, don’t worry we have you covered with this article. We will summarise this week and highlight all the Sports and Physiotherapy resources. If you have an interest in the sports sciences or are a student of either Applied Sciences or Health & Social Care, then we have you covered.
On Monday, we gave a shout-out to our physical book display and reading lists.
On Tuesday, we gave a shout-out to our research databases. Research Databases are a collection of online scholarly works that can be articles, case studies and periodicals. We have a database tab on LibrarySearch. There are 3 that we would like to highlight; Medline, PubMed and Sportdiscus:
- Medline: covers a wide range of medical journal articles and references with a focus on biomedicine.
- PudMed: developed by the National Library of Medicine in the USA. Thousands of articles and citations that range from biomed to life science.
- SportDiscus: Provided by the Sport Information Resource Centre. It covers sport and fitness and related disciplines.
Half way the week, it was about the journals. We have 4 journals to promote. We want to add that not all journals can be found in databases but you can either search them individually on librarysearch or on the journal tab. Like the research databases, they covered a wide range from fitness to medicine.
- International Journal of Sport Medicine
- Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research
- British Journal of Sport Medicine
- Medicine & Science in Sport & Exercise
Not only do we have research databases but we have non-research databases. And it was our non-research databases that took the spotlight.
- Anatomy.Tv (Also known as Anatomy and Physiology Online): Here you will find over 20 interactive Modules, 3D anatomy and media-rich content. Case studies and quizzes are available.
- Sage Research Methods: Research essential. Provides information on writing research questions, how to do a literature review, research methods, collecting and analysing data and much more. It covers all research methods used in the social sciences.
Once again, you can find these all on LibrarySearch.
