Searching for Social/Public Policy Information?

Finding Journal Articles

Start with this search box or one or these databases to find journal articles--including peer-reviewed articles--on social work and related topics. The search box searches many, though not all, of the library's database. If you would like to see a complete list of databases please look at the A-Z Databases list.


Google Scholar

If you're looking for more articles, try Google Scholar.  If you use this search box instead of going into Google Scholar directly you will find links to some of Babson Library's full-text articles on the right ("Full-Text @ Babson) plus you will be able to use Get It @ Babson (click on More underneath the article abstract) to locate the article in the Library or, failing that, to request it.
