The Encyclopedia of Social Work is available digitally through Vogel Library. Be sure to use the search box on the left of the page.
(The one at the top of the page searches all of Oxford Reference and not just the Encyclopedia of Social Work.)
Look for related subjects, alternate phrases or spelling, and broad, topic-level information.
For Social Work research, you are going to use SocINDEX (link below).
One calculated search cannot return all of the results you need. Instead, you will need to explore each topic area on its own and then in combination with each other. If you don't have a record-keeping system, you are going to lose track of what you have and haven't done. For this step, use a spreadsheet to keep a log, save citations of relevant articles to RefWorks, or use your own way of tracking.
As you do research, you will learn new information. It's okay (and recommended) to reconsider and make changes to your research strategy. The topics that end up in your literature review may not be the exact ones you set out to research. With this in mind, make sure to check in with your professor if you have any topic-related questions or concerns for this project.
You answer these three questions every time you use a source, whether you know it or not.
Start noticing how you answer these questions to ensure your sources are really meeting your needs.
