Books and ebooks

UNLV's library catalog uses Library of Congress classification terms, which means that any book about soccer will have the word soccer in the book's subject description, even if the title and text of the book only uses the term football. 

Other good keywords might include the name of a country, region or continent that you are interested in. 

The search below links to a list of books about social aspects of the game in various communities. "Online access" means that the book is an ebook; Lied Library Book Stacks means that it is a printed book available on the 3, 4 or 5th floor of Lied Library. Use the call number to locate the book or ask for help if you're not sure where to go.
