    A collection of free resources about the Olympic and Paralympic Games has been released in our online archive, RADAR

    The collection includes case studies and discussion starters which examine issues and questions concerning the Olympics and Paralympics as well as resources for research comprising a range of Routledge publications.

    A research pack has been produced for the project by the Centre for Sport, Physical Education and Activity Research (SPEAR) at Canterbury Christchurch University. This includes a guide entitled 'Understanding Olympic and Paralympic Legacies' linking to other resources produced by SPEAR and all other materials which can be used for research and learning under the terms of Creative Commons. Creative Commons allows material to be copied or repurposed for teaching activities.

    The collection was collated by the Higher Education Academy Subject Centre for Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism (HLST) hosted by Brookes before it closed in December 2011. This was part of a project funded by JISC (the Joint Information Systems Committee) called '2012: Legacies for Learning'.
