Shelf Browsing

Kinesiology branches out over many different subject areas.  If you want to browse either the reference (main floor) or regular (upstairs) collections to find material, I would suggest that you look in the following sections (click a section to see the call number outline for that area):

GV 201-555 - Physical Education and Training

GV 557-1198.995 - Sports

QM 1-511 - Human Anatomy, General

QP 1-345 - Physiology, General

RA 421-790.95 - Public Health. Hygiene. Preventive Medicine

RC 925-935 - Diseases of the Musculoskeletal System

RD 92-97.8 - Emergency Surgery. Wounds and Injuries

RM 695-893 - Physical Medicine. Physical Therapy

TX 341-361 - Nutrition. Foods and Food Supply

Search the Entire Collection

While the items you'll find in the Reference Collection can be a terrific place to start your research, more detailed information can be found in the Library's print and eBook collections.  The search box found here is the same as the one on the Library's main page - it can search for books and other material here at the UWinnipeg Library, at libraries in Winnipeg, at libraries across Canada, or even libraries around the world.


Search Tips


Words may be right-hand truncated using an asterisk ('*') in place of other characters. The '*' wildcard may also be embedded in a search string. You may use '?' to replace a single character anywhere within a word.

Examples : environment* polic*, wom?n

Boolean Operators

Use "and" or "or" to specify multiple words in any field, any order. Use "and not" to exclude words.

Example : stocks and bonds

Example : (alaska or canada) and (adventure and not vacation)

Field limits

A field limit causes the system to search only the specified field for the specified word(s).


Keyword search results are usually grouped by relevance to bring the most likely titles to the top of the list. Each group represents a similar level of relevance and results are sorted within the group by date or title. To get an ungrouped result set, use boolean operators to form a complex query.

Course Reserves

The University of Winnipeg has instituted a new Course Reserves system, Ares, in order to streamline the reserves process and ensure that all course readings are distributed in accordance with the Copyright Act and the University's Copyright Policy. Using the New system, instructors can submit requests for a variety of resources - both physical and digital - and Reserves staff will ensure copyright compliance before making the items available to students.

Requesting an Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan Requests can be submitted one of two ways:

  • by filling out a request form on our website.
  • using the Find Text link in one of our databases.

For example, if, when searching in an Ebsco database, you discover a resource that is unavailable here at the UofW, you can click Request an Interlibrary Loan. It will take few seconds to search for the item at other institutions. You may view a list of institutions where this item is available, or simply proceed. Upon entering your barcode, your request is placed.

Interlibrary loan materials may take a week or longer to arrive, so please have patience. If you item has not arrived within ten days, contact the Interlibrary Loan department at 786-9814.
