Sport and Social Issues: Getting Started

A Message from Your Librarian

I will be away from the University until January 13, 2016. If you need immediate research assistance, please view our Ask a Librarian options. For research consultations, instruction requests, or purchase recommendations, please contact Jamie Dendy at during this time.

New Database

This important database has been added to Snell Library's subscriptions. Enjoy!

Key Journal

Quick Catalog Search

Scholar OneSearch

Search for books, videos, and journals in the library catalog section of Scholar OneSearch. The small box here does not search articles.


Here you will find a collection of resources that may prove useful for your research involving the intersection of sport and social issues. If you have suggestions for additional content for this guide, don't hesitate to let me know! The Feedback box at the bottom of the right-hand column is a good way to do this.

You may also want to check the website for Sport in Society, a Northeastern University research center, which contains other helpful information and links.


Best Bets: Research Databases

Here are some of your best options for finding articles on issues and topics in sport and society, including culture, race, gender, youth, violence, diversity, respect, disabilities, activism, and human rights. This field is very interdisciplinary so you'll probably want to try more than one of these resources.
