Posted by Admin On 7/16/2014 0 comments

The library has a new EBSCO database, SPORTDiscus. It is available at http://gtsearch.library.gatech.edu/search/?base=databases&action=alphabetical#S 

This is the most comprehensive, full-text database covering sports and sports medicine journals and providing full text for hundreds of journals indexed in SPORTDiscus . Of those, several hundred are not found with full text in any version of Academic Search, Health Source or Biomedical Reference Collection. Subject areas covered include: biomechanics, drugs, exercise, kinesiology, movement science, nutrition, occupational health and therapy, physical fitness, physical therapy, rehabilitation, sports and exercise psychology, coaching and education, and sports medicine. This authoritative file contains full text for many of the most used journals in the SPORTDiscus index - with no embargo. With full-text coverage dating back to 1985, SPORTDiscus with Full Text is the definitive research tool for all areas of sports and sports medicine literature.

Today is the last day to withdraw from the later summer semester of classes.  You may withdraw from the semester, receiving a "W" in all classes, up until 4.00 PM.

The Office of the Registrar is reminding you of the Board of Regents policy requiring students to complete their math and English requirements according to the benchmarks below:

Effective for freshman entering Fall 2010, students who have earned 60 hours but have not completed Areas A1 (English) or A2 (Math) must enroll in the next course necessary to make progress toward completing this Area in every semester in which they take classes.

Effective for freshman entering Fall 2011, this hour limit is lowered to 45 hours.

Effective for freshman entering Fall 2012 and forward, the hour limit is lowered to 30 hours.

If students are not meeting these benchmarks, they must register for the next course necessary to make progress toward completing their degree during Phase I registration. For the students who did not register for the required course during Phase I registration, the course will be added to their schedule and they will be notified via email. Students who will be out of compliance if the required course(s) are not completed in Fall 2014 will be notified via email this week to register for the course for Fall 2014. 

If you have any questions about how this rule applies to you, don't hesitate to email Dr. D'Unger or schedule an appointment at www.advising.gatech.edu.
