Technologies used in sports-related professions and activities

Sports & Technology Topics

The optimal search strategy depends upon your topic and what you wish to know. Sports and technology topics include

  • Historic overview of sports equipment
  • Clothing and protective gear
  • Footwear
  • Playing surfaces
  • Team Sport large equipment
  • Electronic timing systems
  • Media and sport
  • Sports simulations

You must search library catalogs, library databases, and the Internet with words. So it can help to brainstorm what words do people use to talk about your topic? It may help to get a broad overview of your topic and learn about the terminology and subtopics from an encyclopedia or source that specializes in summarizing information.

Sports & Technology Databases

Sports and technology topics are often interdisciplinary, depending upon how the researcher wishes to approach the topic. 

  • sports databases, such as SPORTDiscus
  • business databases, such as Business Source Complete
  • technology databases, such as Applied Science & Technology Source
