Reviews of the Human Kinetics Library

Library Journal, Rob Tench, Old Dominion University Libraries, February 2021

"Boasting easy navigation, multiple content links, an engaging interface, and numerous search features, this is an excellent resource for anyone with an interest in exercise science, fitness, health, nutrition, and sports — from students writing reports to researchers seeking relevant content to teachers needing help with lesson plans."

"The landing page has a clean look and layout with vibrant colors and attractive, attention-grabbing visuals."

"The font is extremely clear and easy to read. Visuals enhance the text in many ebooks, such as a flow chart of physiological mechanism in the chapter on “Exercise and Sleep Quality” in Martita Lopez’s Exercise and Its Mediating Effects in Cognition."

Doody’s Review Service, Roxanne Backowski, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, December 2020

"Acquiring Human Kinetics Library would benefit undergraduate institutions that have a kinesiology or exercise science program, especially those looking for textbooks [and] visual content."

"Human Kinetics Library [...] allows students, researchers, and instructors access to a bundled collection of electronic textbooks, supplementary monographs, and videos previously available only as individual titles (labeled by the company as ‘a digital hub for sport and exercise studies’). The database is easy to navigate through its indexing and search tools."

"The many videos and images benefit college students and professors, personal trainers, rehabilitation specialists, athletes, coaches, physical educators, nutritionists and more."

"The resources are easily searchable and provide excellent material for students, faculty, and researchers in exercise science-related fields."

"While there are open-access resources in the field [...] there appears to be no other source that collects the resources in one place as does this database."
