How to Search for Kinesiology and Exercise Science/Personal Fitness Trainer Information


There are several types of information available to Kinesiology and Personal Fitness students through the ACC libraries, both in print form and electronically. The tabs along the top of the page provide details on the different formats listed below:

Articles Articles from journals and magazines are the primary source for recent research in a field. Most cutting-edge research in kinesiology and personal fitness will appear in articles first. ACC databases can help connect you to these articles.
Books A book can provide detailed background and historical information. Books are a place to check for information that is generally accepted in the field.
Reference Books This covers encyclopedias, atlases, and other resources that are referred to for specific information. Go to these for definitions and shorter explanations.
Web Sites The internet can provide a wealth of information, especially from government sources and from kinesiology and personal fitness organizations.


Kinesiology & Exercise Science/Personal Fitness Trainer Apps

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
