Q. Social Work Literature on Child Abuse
A good place for UMBC-affiliated users to start searching for research on child abuse would be the Library's Social Work - Bachelors (UMBC) LibGuide. Under the "Research Help" tab of this guide is a listing of databases and core journals. Of these resources, start with the database, Social Services Abstracts, and the journals, Child Maltreatment and Child Abuse & Neglect.
If you are in the MSW program, a similar guide, Social Work - MSW (UMB), would be the best place to start.
