Sports: Welcome

Useful resources and services for students of Sport and Enterprise.

Welcome to DkIT Library Sports

In this guide you'll find information for students of Community Sports Leadership and Sports, Exercise and Enterprise. We also suggest that you look up our guides on Social Care, Business, and Information Skills, for other resources in your area. These are Library search engines and databases that you may find useful:


Journals are academic publications that appear at regular intervals. The research will be more up-to-date than in academic textbooks, as they have a shorter publishing cycle. Articles and research are examined by other experts in the field before publication (peer review). So they are a great source of information for your assignments and essays.
