Welcome to your SWKG 685 Child Welfare course guide!
The tabs above will guide and direct in providing resources for your course and general research needs. I am happy to assist with your research needs, whether it's determining appropriate sources to consult, help with focusing your topic, database searches, tracking down those "hard to find" references and resources, and/or overall research strategy.
You may find additional resources not listed in the course guide by going to the Social Work Subject Guide.
The Social Work Student's Guide to Research Handbook (2nd ed.) may also be a useful resource.
Need research help? Whether you're a student enrolled in a fully online program or course, or a more traditional student who prefers to work from the comfort of your home or dorm room, librarians are glad to help.
Send an email to email@example.com to schedule a time to meet online with me in Zoom.
A major benefit of using the Zoom webinar system is the screen sharing feature that allows us to provide a live demonstration of the library databases and share links to the results. The ability to ask questions in order to better understand your research need is another benefit.
