Designed to familiarise researchers, students, faculty, librarians, and leisure studies professionals working in areas of leisure studies, sports, fitness and travel/tourism with English-language resources available in today's information market place, this guide identifies, describes and organises into a usable format 283 reference sources that support research related to leisure. Current information about leisure studies and data related to the largest, fastest-growing, leisure-related activities (sports, fitness, and travel/tourism) are encompassed by the text. Each of the four chapters begins with a treatise on the discipline, including a description of its reference environment and any unique aspects of the literature related to that discipline. An annotated listing of some of the best, most-used titles arranged from the general to the specific follows. Guides and handbooks, noteworthy books or standard/classic sources, dissertations, bibliographies, catalogues, dictionaries and encyclopaedias, directories, indexes, abstracts, databases, core journals, conference proceedings, statistical sources and trend data, and newsletters are all treated as resources. Institutions offering degree programs, important publishers, and related associations are included in the appendixes.
