As of the 2014-2015 academic year, all Masters’ in Social Work (MSW) students will need to take the Social Welfare Library Research Seminar within the first 15 credits of their program. This class runs the gamut of library research. You will learn about basic, fundamental resources that are only available from the library, such as Social Work Abstracts and PsycINFO. You will learn advanced strategies for searching these databases and other databases and resources. Most important, you will learn how to locate journal articles even when they are not available from the database or website you are searching!
There are also advanced seminars in specific subject areas such as Federal information sources, NonProfit Organizations, Evidence Based Practice, and another class in Research Databases. You may also be interested in our new class on Citation Managers.
There is a full schedule of these classes online or stop by the Dewey Library and pick up a flyer!
