Social Work

This guide provides information resources tailored to students and faculty in the Social Work department.

Social Work Databases

Social Work Abstracts and Social Services Abstracts are the two major databases that contain articles from Social Work Journals. Typically, Social Work Abstracts will have fewer results than Social Services Abstracts, and they will have different articles. Consider searching both of them.

Social Work Adjacent Databases

Social Work is a field of study that ties into and connects well with many other fields. For example, if you are interested in school social work, searching Education databases in addition to Social Work databases might be useful. Psychology, Allied Health, Criminal Justice, and Sociology are only a few of the other areas you might be interested in searching.

General Databases

The library subscribes to some multidisciplinary databases that might have articles that aren't found in some of the subject specific databases listed above.
