Archival Content: Links not maintained SPORTDiscus Now Available
SPORTDiscus, considered to be the leading index to world publications on sports, sport medicine and fitness, is now available to faculty, staff, and students at WTAMU. Whether you are looking for basketball coaching tips, or the latest research on biomechanics of bicycling this index will lead you to the information you need. Coverage dates back as early as 1830, so historical perspective is also available.
Created by the Sport Information Resource Centre of Canada, the index also uses the special SIRCThesaurus to reveal related terms specific to sport terminolgy. For example, the subject "ergogenic aid" is related to more specific terms such as "blood doping", "electric stimulation" and "oxygen inhalation".

- coaching and administration,
- exercise physiology,
- health and physical education,
- individual and team sports,
- motor learning,
