Social Work: Finding Books

Use Books/Media / OneSearch! to Find Books

 Use the Books/Media tab of OneSearch! located on the Rod Library Web page to identify books and other resources about social work.  To ensure that you use appropriate subject terms when you search Books/Media, use the Library of Congress Subject Headings thesaurus which is accessible electronically through the Classification Web (choose the LC Subject Headings option) or in the printed Library of Congress Subject Headings volumes located at Rod Library Reference Collection Z 695 L696. Useful subject headings include those beginning with the words “Social work” or “Social service” and additional headings such as:

  • Child abuse
  • Child sexual abuse
  • Child welfare
  • Conflict management
  • Family services
  • Family violence
  • Homeless persons
  • Human services
  • Older people -- government policy
  • Public welfare
  • Social advocacy
  • Social policy
  • Substance abuse

A Keyword search will allow you to search for specific words that appear within the title, subject, or notes fields of the online records. Keyword searching is a powerful feature of the Books/Media system, but a thorough search for information on any subject should include searches using relevant subject headings.
