To research information about how your chosen culture or population is served by the human services profession, begin on the Library homepage. Search your chosen demographic with the phrase "human services." For example, to find information about Native Americans, search the phrase "human services" "native americans"

Alternatively, you may try the Advanced Search option.

On the Advanced Search page, select Social Work from the disciplines field:

Scrolling to the top of the page, search terms and phrases can be combined. Below is an example searching the combined phrase native american culture AND cultural competence: 

Another search may be:

"culturally competent services" "native americans"

You can also replace the phrase "human services" with "social services"

Be sure to keep the quotation marks as shown. They tell the database to search that exact phrase combination.
