III. Policies: Integrative Physiology

  • Subject name: Integrative Physiology
  • Subject abbreviations: KINMO/KINSU
  • Bibliographer: Barbara Losoff
  • Other subject responsibilities: Biology, Chemistry, Speech, language, and hearing sciences
  • Address: 184 UCB

I. Purpose:
The Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology provides instruction and research on the study of human movement and the study of biological systems in the maintenance of internal homeostais (applied physiology). There is an emphasis on physical activity and its role in human health.

A. Curricular emphasis:
Emphasis is on the principles of biomechanical, physiological and muscular control, and how they function across the human life span.


B. Research emphasis:
Research topics include biochemical basis of human performance, cellular and systemic cardiovascular physiology, biomechanics, mechanics and neural control of locomotion, motor behavior, and vascular biology.


C. Level of Degrees granted:
BA, MS, Concurrent BA/MS, PhD.


D. Special Study Programs:


E. Other Subjects that Overlap and Utilize Materials:
Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, Engineering, Education, Psychology, Nutrition, Recreation and Leisure Studies.


F. Institutes or Labs That Utilize Materials:
Colorado Institute of Cardiovascular Research
University Community Wellness Evaluation Program
Human Performance Laboratory
Athletic Department
Wardenberg Health Center
Wardenberg Health Center ¨ Sports Medicine Division
Recreation Services
Center for Recreation and Tourism Development


G. Special Populations Outside University that Utilize Materials:
Athletes, Doctors, Psychologists, Coaches, Trainers, Community sports programs


H. Other considerations:
This department has moved from an emphasis on physical education to one of emphasis on the scientific study of human movement. This is an area that commands a large degree of attention from the local community because the community is very fitness oriented.

II. General Collection Guidelines

A. Method of Acquiring Materials:
Approval plan for books from Blackwell North American. Special orders for faculty and reserve requests.


B. Languages:
Primarily English


C. Chronological Guidelines:
Emphasis is on current research materials. Some historical interest.


D. Geographical Guidelines:
Primarily North American with some European.


E. Treatment of Subject:
Current research on applied physiology and kinesiology is collected on a broad basis. Information on specific sports will be collected as it addresses the human movement of the sport. Lower division textbooks generally will not be collected. Popular treatments of individual sports may be collected for their historical and social importance. Materials on coaching techniques and physical education are not collected. Recreation materials may be purchased as relevant for an undergraduate population.


F. Types of materials:
Current books and journals are emphasized. Material in electronic format is encouraged. Relevant indexes and abstracts are acquired. Directories of research facilities, practitioners and other programs are collected. Theses and dissertations are collected selectively and primarily at the request of the faculty and graduate students. Limited audio/visual materials are purchased.


G. Date of Publication:
Emphasis is on current materials. Some historical resources may be purchased selectively.


H. Other General Considerations:
Materials for the study of Kinesiology are generally housed in the Science Library. Some materials may be in Norlin stacks as they pertain to recreation studies. Audio/video materials are housed in Media. Some of the more highly technical and medical material (on cardiovascular research, for example) is purchased by and housed at the UC Health Sciences Center Library. Strong reciprocal purchasing and borrowing exist to serve studies in this field.
