Welcome, Social Work students! 

This guide will help you find information about social work in several formats:

  • journal articles (including peer-reviewed articles)
  • books
  • web sites

If you need more help, contact us!  See contact information in right column.


Tip -- Modifying searches

If you can't find what you want, you may have to experiment.  Try different kinds of searches.

Example:  You are looking for articles about social work with pregnant deaf teenagers.  Here are some ways to change your search:

  • try synonyms (words that have similar meanings).  Subsitute
    • "adolescents" for "teenagers"
    • "single mothers" for "pregnant"
    • "hearing impaired," "hard of hearing," or "hearing loss" for "deaf"
  • break your search into smaller parts.  Example:
    • first look for articles about social work with deaf teenagers
    • then look for articles about social work with pregnant teenagers 
  • eliminate "social work."  Many articles that discuss the problems of pregnant deaf teenagers may have good information, even if they are not directly related to social work.
