Biomechanics and Movement Science

Finding Books


Books are important sources of basic information on a topic, providing necessary definitions, background information, and statistics. They can provide a foundation for research which can be supplemented by more current information from journal articles. Books also often contain useful bibliographies which may lead to additional research  material. To locate books, use DELCAT Discovery, the Library catalog. 


Sample subject terms that might be of use when searching DELCAT Discovery for information on Biomechanics and Movement Science are:

sport, biomechanics  rehabilitation, robotics
anatomy  clinical, biomechanics
neurophysiology  sport, injuries
biomechanics, modeling  motor control, behavior
exercise, physiology  human, locomotion


The UD Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System to arrange books and print journals on the shelves. This system uses letters and numbers to complete the Call Number. A call number is like an address: it tells us where the book is located in the library.

To find information on the following subjects see the designated call numbers:
