International Social Work year 1 - searching and finding reliable literature: 3. Find

Databases for Social Work students

The website of the HAN studiecentra gives you, as a HAN student, access to a wide range of databases where you can find reliable, scientific literature. Many of these databases can be searched directly in the HANQuest search engine (see green table below).

However, a small number of databases are not included by HANQuest, so you will need to search them separately. One example is the Nexis Uni database where you can search English-language newspapers (e.g. for keeping abreast of what is happening in society). You can learn how to use this database under the Nexis Uni tab.

If you want a complete overview of important websites and databases in the field of social work, go to the option 'databases' on the homepage of the Study centre's website and enter the word: ISW.
