NEW Social Work Abstracts Database

The Libraries are pleased to offer a helpful resource to scholars and students of a helping profession.

The Social Work Abstracts database, produced by the National Association of Social Workers, Inc., contains abstracts for over 35,000 articles and dissertations in the field of social work, from 1977 to the present. Social work perspectives are provided on topics such as homelessness, AIDS, child and family welfare, aging, substance abuse, legislation, community organization, and more. This also includes, as a database, the most recent edition of the membership directory of the National Association of Social Workers, the NASW Register of Clinical Social Workers, which lists registered social workers, including their addresses and phone numbers, education and specialization, type of practice and license information.

Users may access Social Work Abstracts from the front page of the Libraries website either through IRIS or by following the path Indexes / Social Sciences & Law / Social Work.
