Reference Resources


A good place to start if you don’t know anything about your topic.


Resources included in this section are multi-sport in nature. Other reference resources exist that focus on individual sports such as baseball. Additionally, the Reference Department also has such other resources as directories of college athletic programs, scholarship guides, and guides to the rules of sports. The librarians at the reference desk can direct you to a suitable resource.


These are found on the second floor of the Richard J. Daley (Main) Library in the Reference Collection. You may only use them in the Library.

Finding Books


UICCAT is our online catalog, which tells you what books we own on a particular topic.


Subject searching for “sports” will yield general works on the topic. More specific aspects can be found by searching terms such as “Aquatic sports”, “Nationalism and sports”, or “Olympics”, or the names of individual sports such as “Gymnastics” or “Swimming”. Try related terms like “Athletes” or “Games” as well. Keyword searching may also be effective. In this way “sports” or “athletics” may be combined with other words that describe your topic to narrow down a search.


Check the call number and location in UICCAT to find out where each item is located.


Finding Articles


Electronic indexes may be found through the Library’s Web Pages by clicking on “Resources" and following the links under “Indexes and Databases”.
