Choosing a Database

The library subscribes to many different subject-specific databases. You can think of each database as kind of like Netflix, or Crave or another streaming service. Each one has slightly different content, though there may be some overlap.

Discovery lets you search through most of them at the same time. Sometimes searching in Discovery will make your results too broad and bring back irrelevant results, and you may want to search just one or two databases at a time to narrow your results down right away.

There are numerous databases that we recommend for kinesiology research, including those listed further down this page.

Watch the short video below to learn how to access individual database's from the library's website, and how to combine a few databases together into one search.
