Social Work: Getting Started

Guide to resources in social work including reference works, databases, and websites.

Welcome

This guide is designed to help you get started on your research in social work.  Use the tabs above to find reference works, articles, books, and librarian-approved websites.  Feel free to contact me directly (see box to right) if you have any questions or want to set up an appointment to meet for more help.

 

Using Reference Resources

Reference books like dictionaries and encyclopedias are great ways to get background information on your topic.

You will need to cite information you learn from reference works, just as you would from books and articles. Citation information is usually at the bottom of the screen if you are using an online reference source.
