This guide identifies the most useful resources for sport and exercise sciences and keeps you up to date with library skills and news for your subject area.

Getting Started using the Library

The best place to start searching for resources for your course is your online reading list and LibrarySearch.

You’ll be able to discover key books and journal articles from both of these. Digital items will be linked from here and may require your Kent Login to access. Physical items will generally be found at A2(Classmark G), B1(Classmark Q) and DG (Classmark R).

Books and Ebooks

We have a large collection of books in the library for sports and exercise as well as anatomy, physiology and sports medicine.

Journal articles

The easiest way to find journal articles is to type a few keywords for your topic in LibrarySearch. If we subscribe to it in print or digital format a link will be provided to help you find it.

If you have a specific journal article you are looking for you can use Google Scholar.  This will show you if it is freely available elsewhere and you can also set your browser to link to any content we subscribe to.

To check if the Library has access to a particular e-journal title, or to browse journals, use the journal title search.
