Social Work

This research guide will take you through many of the resources available for social work at the Loyola University Chicago Libraries.

Most Used Social Work Databases

Evidence Based Practice/Systematic Databases

EBP and systematic reviews can be found in many databases, but some databases specialize in these areas.  

Non-subscription EBP Sources on the Web, depending on your topic:

Databases of Interest to Social Work

These databases may be helpful for areas of social work research beyond what the Social Work databases can give you.  For example, use the education databases for articles on early childhood development, gangs in schools, school social work and similar topics.  Use the criminal justice databases for inmate counseling, substance abuse articles and effects of family member imprisonment.  Many other topics as well.
