Nearly everything you will need is in the Social Work Library Guide.  Look at it closely, including all of the tabs and sub-pages on the tabs.

  • Learning Support provides free writing and tutoring support for social work students. 
  • The most commonly used databases for Social Work research are PsycINFO, Google Scholar, and Social Work Abstracts
  • Social Work uses APA-style citations. The APA Citation Guide will help students with different source formats.
  • Course Reserves, (USC Libraries' online reserve system) is used in almost all social work classes for required readings (though not all classes, particularly field practicum and advanced standing courses).
  • The best sources regarding interventions, programs, or evidence-based practices (EBPs), are listed under the Evidence-based Practices section of the Social Work Library Guide.

  • Students will find it in their VAC (for online students) or Blackboard (for on-the-ground students) classrooms.
  • There is no electronic copy in the library, nor can it be obtained through Interlibrary Loan.
  • The students will receive the best guidance directly from his or her instructor if they don’t find it in the online classroom.
