New! Social Work Online

University of Edinburgh Library has recently set up a subscription with ProQuest that gives you access to almost all available ProQuest digital primary source databases until 31st July 2024. See ProQuest Access 350. This is the first in a series of blog posts that will highlight particular databases or collections from ProQuest Access 350 that are relevant to the School of Social and Political Science. 

Social Work Online

Social Work Online is a first-of-its-kind resource that pairs recently published social work textbooks along with compelling documentaries, clinical demonstration videos, and engaging lectures that illustrate the complex and challenging realities social work students will face as practitioners. The content is structured around twelve of the most important topics in the social work curriculum, most of which are applicable worldwide.

  • Children and Families
  • Crisis and Trauma
  • Diversity
  • Health Care
  • Immigration
  • Mental Health
  • Older Adults
  • School and Social Work
  • Substance Abuse

With over 250 books and documents and nearly 140 videos this is a fantastic all round resource for Social Work and related subject areas.

You can access Social Work Online from the Social Work subject guide or the Databases A-Z list.

Access is only available to current students and staff at the University of Edinburgh.
