HALLS OF FAME, LIBRARIES, AND MUSEUMS

In his 1980 work, Sports: A Reference Guide, Jack Higgs includes detailed descriptions of various sports halls of fame and museums and libraries that house collections of sports artifacts. Over the last twenty years, there has not only been a proliferation of these repositories, but several good reference books that chronicle their addresses and contents have also appeared on the scene. The repositories are so numerous and the reference books so complete that it would be redundant for me to simply relist the material here. Thus, I have included only a short list of easily accessible reference works that contain the names and locations of nearly any resource area that a scholar might need to access.

For information on the hundreds of sports halls of fame that exist in the United States, one should consult Doug Gilbert's Sports Halls of Fame: A Directory of Over 100 Sports Museums in the USA, Paul Dickson's The Volvo Guide to Halls of Fame: The Traveler's Handbook of North America's Most Inspiring and Entertaining Attractions, or Victor Danilov's Hall of Fame Museums: A Reference Guide. For information on museums and libraries, one should consult Gretchen Ghent and Wayne Wilson's North American Sport Library Network Sports Collection: A Selective Guide to Notable Resources in American and Canadian Libraries, Halls of Fame and Museums or Matthew Rosenberger's Sports Resource Directory. Other important guides include Darren Smith's Sports Phone Book USA: A National Directory of Professional, Intercollegiate, and Amateur Sports, Edward Kobac's The Comprehensive Directory of Sports Addresses III: The Global Sports Reference Guide for Everyone's Library, and Mark Larson's Complete Guide to Football, Basketball and Hockey Memorabilia, a comprehensive book that includes many important addresses of relatively obscure places in North America in which sport memorabilia collections are located.
