Sports History & Academics

General Sports Internet Resources

    This is a keyword look at different materials that are available electronically and/or in traditional format within our repository.
  • University of Calgary, Stark Center for Physical Culture & Sports
    Armed with remarkable foresight and extraordinary organizational skills, Gretchen Ghent, librarian at the University of Calgary, began to collect and compile a list of sport research-relevant web sites, long before most of us knew there were such sites. The result was the researcher-friendly Scholarly Sports Sites, a reference web site that Ms. Ghent maintained for 11 years. In 2010, the Stark Center was pleased to become the new home for the Scholarly Sports Sites.
