Resources to Get You Started

Social Services Abstracts

Social Services Abstracts provides bibliographic coverage of current research focused on social work, human services, and related areas, including social welfare, social policy, and community development.

SocINDEX features more than 2.1 million records with subject headings from a 20,000+ term sociological thesaurus.

Social Sciences Full-Text indexes hundreds of periodicals as far back as 1983, many of which are peer-reviewed.

OWL Card

Your Owl Card is your library card and enables you to check materials out of the library and access online electronic databases and journals off-campus.  The card must be activated at the Library prior to use.  This is a one-time procedure that takes less than a minute and is done in person for the protection of the cardholder.  For more information on the Owl Card and its use on campus, click here.
