Head Injuries in Sports

I thought I would share some  recent research that I did at Santa Barbara City college related to concussions in light of The NHL  settlement.

This was done during an 8 week Library Literacy course during the fall of 2018. I will not include all information but I will include citations that you can use and do your own research this may be a helpful guide  for students. I was asked to chose a topic and use various databases journals and websites to complete my work. I wanted to look at the impacts of head injuries at various levels of sport. some of this is historical in nature. and some of these sources bring a human impact element to the story rather than just raw data and numbers  The premise of the course was to use a topic and apply multiple sources 6 to be exact through the 8 week course.  The first thing I did was define the topic through various filtered databases located on the Santa barbara City College Luria Library. The approved topic was
                                   The impact of head injuries in professional and Non-Professional sports?

 

  Here are the 6 sources all  verified as  accurate.
