Spotlight on Meanwhile in the Library: Sport

The Library is very excited to announce that its next exhibition will be ‘Meanwhile, in the Library…’ which will look at how comics, graphic novels, cartoons, newspaper strips, caricatures and picture books can be used within academia and how they connect with  subject areas such as science, game design, film, journalism, autobiography and art. 

Why not use a comic and academic text together to help get into a subject! Unsure about this approach...take a look at these articles!

Other relevant subject guides

This guide covers the core resources you need for day-to-day study and research.  However, you may sometimes find other subject guides useful for specialised topics. You can find a full list of other guides on the Library Gateway, but some useful guides are:

TED (Technology Entertainment and Design)

TED is a website with a number of conference presentations and was formed to disseminate "ideas worth spreading." It is a good tool for current awareness of worldwide issues.

A number of sport related talks are included in TED, such as 'Are we born to run?' by Christopher McDougall were he considers the human desire to run, how did running help early humans and what urges from our ancient ancestors spur us on today.
