The Social Work Library

The Social Work Library located on the School’s first floor is one of the school’s outstanding educational resources. The library’s collection covers all aspects of social services and social work, as well as related material from other disciplines. Reserve readings for Crown Family School classes are located here.

The Library provides online access to thousands of ejournals and ebooks, as well as hundreds of databases. Computer workstations are available in the Library, which provide access to all of our online resources as well as various software products to assist you with your individual research.

The staff of the library are available to help researchers locate appropriate materials in the library and elsewhere in the University Library System. The Librarian can also provide research consultations and assistance with citation management tools upon request.

Students can access real time help with their research questions through the "Ask a Librarian" chat service. Students can also contact the Librarian, Holiday Vega, directly at holi@uchicago.edu to set up research consultations, ask questions about searching for peer-reviewed literature, or help with citation management.
