In honor of the 2008 Olympics, which begin on August 8, our Reference display on M-Level (outside the Reference Librarian office) features selected reference titles about sports and databases that will keep you up-to-date. Take a look at the Berkshire Encyclopedia of World Sport and the International Encyclopedia of Women and Sports for background on the events. Curious about where the games are held? Flip through Modern China: An Encyclopedia of History, Culture, and Nationalism. Lexis Nexis Academic and Academic Search Premier are updated daily with magazine and newspaper articles about the events.
