Explore these reference sources on social work and related issues. They are all located in Main Reference on the Library's 1st floor.
Articles from journals and magazines will also prove useful in your review for the exam as they report on the issues and situations social workers face in the workplace. The best way to locate these articles is by using the Library's online article databases. These databases are now easily accessible off campus by clicking on the database name and typing in the information requested. If you need additional assistance with accessing the databases, contact Randy Curtis (334 229-6968) or Cedric Davis (334 229-6998).
Some of the databases provide access to the entire text of articles. If the text of an article is not available in a database, check for the journal or magazine title in Serials Solutions (ASU) to determine if the article is available in another database. Also check HORNetCat, our online catalog, for availability of journals in the Serials Department on the third floor. You may order those not available in the Library or via a full-text database through Interlibrary Loan.
