Athletic Training

Welcome! This guide is designed to help you learn how to use K-State Libraries' many resources to complete your athletic training assignments.

Databases for Athletic Training

The databases listed below are the primary resources you will use.  They are listed in preferential order, so begin with the first one and go to the other databases as needed.

Exception: FNDH 120 and FNDH 320 (for nonmajors) students will need to start with SPORTDiscus and move down the list as needed.

   Help is available for finding systematic reviews in PubMed Health.
