Finding Books: Kinesiology

Use the library catalogue to find books, microforms, or audiovisual materials about your subject. Selected electronic resources are also included in the Catalogue.

To find materials on a particular topic, begin with a keyword search then scan your results for relevant titles and look at the subject headings assigned to the individual titles. These subject links can then be used to search for similar items.

Examples of subject headings to check:

Many headings are used with subdivisions, either for a particular geographical area, such as:
