LS 472: Legal Issues in Sports and Recreation: Finding Books


To find books and government documents in USA Libraries' collections, use SOUTHcat: USA Libraries' Catalog.

  • Catalog tips and tricks:
    • Keyword searches – use quotation marks to hold phrases together ("sports law")
    • Truncation – use ? after the root of a word to find all its variants (negligen? finds negligence, negligent ...)
    • Browse the Subject(s) field in records to find the right words for searches. (Example: Try doing a keyword search for "sports law," then look at the subject(s) field in several records. You’ll see that one subject term is "Sports --Law and legislation --United States --Cases." Click the subject heading to find more records with this subject.)
  • Revise and refine your searches.
  • Watch for repeating call numbers and browse stacks in that area.
  • Pay attention to the Location and Status fields. You will need this information to locate the item in the library.
