Golf: Library resources for HFS 155 Adv/Outdoor Rec: Golf: Access to Golf Digest

An electronic handout for accessing Golf Digest via the SPORTDiscus database and for connecting to Musselman Library's citation guide.

GolfDigest.com vs. Golf Digest via Musselman Library

Golf Digest is a popular magazine for golfers and golf enthusiasts all over the world.  You'll be using Golf Digest as a resource for your golf class here at Bluffton University.

GolfDigest.com does offer some of the articles published in Golf Digest the magazine, but you can only read articles back to February 2012.

However, Musselman Library can give you access to the complete text of Golf Digest columns and articles all the way back to July 1, 1993.  This guide will tell you everything you need to connect to these articles so you can search or browse.

How can we do this?  Musselman Library provides our students, faculty, and staff with access to SPORTDiscus, a searchable collection of more than 550 sports and sports medicine journals and magazines containing the complete text of thousands of articles from these sources, including Golf Digest.  SPORTDiscus and other searchable databases like it are not freely available on the web, and not accessible to Google.  You can use SPORTDiscus because you're a Bluffton student.

To browse or search issues of Golf Digest using SPORTDiscus, check out the tabs on this guide.
