Social Work


Welcome to the Reference Guide to the Human Services/Social Work Programs from the UMass Libraries.

This guide is geared toward the intermediate level researcher, refreshing ideas learned such as basic research techniques, search strategies, evaluation of information, bibliographic styles and a link to the online citation manager RefWorks.

There are suggestions of databases and internet links that can provide reliable articles, information, and statistical data in the human services/social work fields and what to do if there is an article you need that is not available at the UMass Libraries.

If you need further help of a specialized nature please contact david maccourt at 413-577-1982 or or the human services/social work subject specialist Steve Mc Ginty at 413-545-1871 or to schedule a research appointment.
