Sports Industry

This resource LibGuide serves to promote the sharing and discovering of knowledge related to the industry of sports.


UA-subscribed eBooks


Be sure to use the Libraries search and discovery interface, i.e. Scout, to find not only books and other publications physically in our libraries but also many electronic resources that we subscribe to that are in the cloud.

Using Scout one can filter a search looking just for eBooks on sports.

An eBook example:

Book Jacket

Sports Media:Reporting, Producing, and Planning

The information landscape grows larger every day. Subscribing to everything is financially impossible. The financial costs to academic libraries to subscribe to the wealth of information resources is staggering.

UA spends several million dollars per year on the approximately 600 databases that we currently have access to for UA-affiliated users.

The management of resources  vs. cost is an on-going struggle. 

LibGuides Community is an excellent place to see what information resources other libraries have (both subscribed [titles only] and free/open, web-based sites).
