Human Services Research Guide

Sources and information for research in Human Services.

Research databases providing content across all Human Services levels!

Need to find articles, books or other research materials related to the field of Human Services? 

There are a large number of databases available, each one different from another in a variety of ways. They may have very different search features and options. Some databases are subject specific while others cover a more general, broad-based range of subject areas. They may provide full online access to some or all of the items (article, book, video, etc.), or they may provide only an abstract or partial clip, or just list the item's citation information.

SocIndex with Full Text, PsycINFO and PsycARTICLES are great databases to start with for just about any human services topic. The other databases listed below are additional resources you may also want to use depending on your topic. Don't get discouraged if the item you want is not full text in the database you are using - there are several ways you can still get it! See the Get Items from Another Library section of this guide to learn more.
