A guide to specialized microform collections housed in Bell Library
Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Exercise and Sport Science Microform Publications
The Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Exercise and Sport Science Microform Publications (HPER) collection is composed of theses and dissertations published during the years 1949-1987 in the following fields:
exercise and sport sciences
sport-related issues in the humanities and social sciences
The theses and dissertations are compiled primarily from universities in the United States and Canada.
Finding HPER Materials
You can use the library's Quick Search to find materials in HPER using author, title, subject and keyword searches. To expedite your search, limit to Library Catalog using the menu on the left hand side of the Quick Search results screen.
Author and subject indices are also available on microfiche, but as all materials in HPER are in the library's online catalog, these indices are largely obsolete.
Retrieving HPER Materials
The HPER microfiche are located in one file cabinet in the microform area. The microfiche are filed alphabetically by the author's last name. Please feel free to ask for assistance at the Ask Us Desk. Operating instructions are posted next to the readers for your convenience.
Printing from HPER Materials
You can print from HPER Materials by sending a print job to be retrieved from library printers. Costs for printing are posted near the printers on the first floor of the library.
Please place the microfilm in the small return box on the table next to the microform readers.
We invite questions and/or comments and look forward to hearing from you. Contact the Ask Us Desk for more information.
