Social Work

This guide is a collection of resources to make research and library use easier for the social work students, faculty, and staff. It's designed as a central hub of information about the library & its social work-related resources.

York Library is open for Spring 2022. We recommend reserving your books online ahead of your visit so that they're ready for you to pick up.

Books can be requested through OneSearch using the Request Item option. (See our Onesearch how-to guide for more info on using Onesearch.) Once you've placed a request, you will receive confirmation when the item is ready for you to pick up.

The regular circulating stacks are still closed for browsing so making the request in OneSearch ahead of time is the most convenient way for you to check out books. If you need books from the reference section, you can ask for a librarian for assistance.

Finding Books & Ebooks

Social work is an interdisciplinary field and can include topics related to psychology, research methods, government policies, healthcare, diversity studies, and social sciences. If you'd like to browse the library's print collection, the majority of social work print resources can be found under the Library of Congress (LC) "HV" call number in the library's stack collection. Call number HV encompasses subject areas related to social services, social welfare, criminology, social justice, and social work with families, children, teenagers, elderly people, people with disabilities, etc.

You can also find any bookprint or digitalby using OneSearch. You can search for specific titles, or even keywords related to social work topics.
