Welcome to the Social Work Library Guide

This subject guide shares resources available at NUS Libraries and more. It is not exhaustive, and features a selective list of materials that are most useful for finding information related to social work.

Assistive technology-friendly :)

This guide is fully accessible when using screen reading applications, and other assistive tools. This includes those using text-to-speech applications. Other features include alternative text and pages are designed to resize responsively. 

If, while using the assistive tools, you come across an aspect of the site that is not accessible, please let the resource librarian know.

As always, do get in touch with the Social Work Resource Librarian should you have any suggestions on what materials to include.
