Welcome to the Social Work Research Guide! Use this guide to find articles, books from the catalog, help with citing sources, and other information specifically for students of Social Work. 

If you have any questions or would like personal help doing your research, use the contact information in the "Contact me" box. One-on-one consultations are available for students, faculty, and staff either during regularly scheduled office hours by using the "Schedule Appointment" button or by contacting me directly if those times don't work.
