Scope of Guide

This web guide is designed to assist USD students, faculty and staff in identifying research materials located in the USD libraries and on the World Wide Web. It is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather a starting point for further research. Use the tabs above to navigate to specific types of resources. Please contact a librarian if you need further assistance.


Introduction to Social Work

Social Work is part of the School of Health Sciences of The University of South Dakota.  Social work students staff and faculty can find several research resources in the University Libraries.  As an applied science, social work practice and research is interdisciplinary and draws from a range of disciplines including psychology, sociology, medicine, gerontology, public administration, policy studies, and economics (National Library of Medicine). 

The social work home page is located at:  

Wegner Health Science Information Center (Sioux Falls):
