How to search for Social Work Information

There are several types of information available to students of Social Work  through the ACC libraries, both in print form and electronically. The tabs along the top of the page provide details on the different types of resources listed below:

Books You can find a good selection of Social Work books in our collection. A book can provide detailed background and in-depth historical information about any given topic.
Reference Books This covers encyclopedias, atlases, and other resources that are referred to for specific information. Go to these for definitions, shorter explanations, quick historical and biographical sketches.
Articles Articles from journals, magazines, and major newspapers are the primary source for information on current social issues, recent sociological studies, and applications of sociological theory in the real world. ACC databases can help connect you to these articles.
Web Sites The internet can provide a wealth of good information, especially from government sources and professional organizations.

 

Sociology Apps

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
