The 20th FIFA World Cup is currently well underway in Brazil and logistically it is a huge undertaking with events taking place across 12 cities.
As such a large sporting event it is an example of large scale events management and hospitality and a catalyst for tourism to the host nation.
Over the next few posts I’ll share a few examples of research on sports events management, hospitality & tourism but you’ll find even more relevant books and journal articles on the Library Catalogue and Discover.
Edited to add all links to this weeks posts on Sports Management & the World Cup:
Your liaison librarians have been buying lots of books and e-books, sometimes they are new titles, sometimes additional copies, and sometimes newer editions of titles already in stock.

We’ve recently pulled some usage information on e-books within our collections and interestingly 6 of the top ten most popular e-books are education books and 4 are business related books.
It’s great to know that education and business students are finding useful e-books. Our librarians have worked with your lecturers to ensure there are relevant e-books available.
Here are the top 5 most used e-books. To view them click on the book covers to view the Library Catalogue record and log in with your University User ID and password.
