This guide is intended to support the coursework and research of the students and faculty of the IU School of Social Work at IUPUI.  Social work is a multifaceted discipline. There is no single "social work section" of the library; information sources may be found throughout the collection and in various formats.

  • Reference - encyclopedias, dictionaries, and web resources
  • Find Articles  - scholarly articles and disertation and theses databases
  • Find Books - online catalogs for books and e-book collections
  • Find Data - data and statistics related to social work
  • Organizations - social work organizations
