Welcome to your Social Work research guide. Use the green tabs to explore sources that will support your research. If you need extra help, feel free to email or call using the information at the far right under my photo. I look forward to meeting you and helping with your research.

How do we know the things we do? All information goes through a process of creation & dissemination. Learning does not happen by osmosis or magic. Consider the information cycle when you do research in social work. How do we know the things we know about social work? About best practices, policies, at-risk populations, and interventions? All social work research goes through the Information Cycle. When you locate a source, consider what stage of the information cycle it comes from and what that means.
