SWO 250: Introduction to Social Welfare: Introduction


The purpose of this guide is to help you locate social work sources in the collections of the USM libraries. It is a selective, not a comprehensive, guide. Depending on your specific area of research, it may also be useful to check guides in related fields, such as sociology and criminology.

In order to find books, journal titles, videos, government documents and other materials held in the University of Maine System you will need to consult URSUS, the online catalog of USM and the University of Maine System..

If you do not know the exact subject heading describing the topic you need, try doing a keyword search using other word/s related to that topic and then click on the subject heading links found within the relevant records to find additional, useful resources.

The following is a listing of selected subject headings relating to this class or to Social Work more generally. Each subject heading is hotlinked directly to URSUS.


If you need a book that is not available through the University of Maine System (URSUS) or MaineCat , you can request it via Interlibrary Loan (Illiad).
