A guide to library resources and websites.

Citing Policies and Government Docs

Organizations Concerned with Policy

The following links are sources of information about policy that is pertinent to Social Work.  Some of these are for-profit organizations that analyze policy.  Please be aware that while these may be useful to you and may provide great perspective on policy, they are not scholarly sources.  Also, some of these sources are advocacy groups and are therefore not completely objective. If your assignment calls only for scholarly sources, please use your judgment.
