Social work and Social care

Welcome to this guide

Welcome to the subject guide for social work and social care. This guide will direct you to your essential library resources and has been compiled by your subject librarians.

The guide has been divided into different sections. When you select a section it will expand to show the sub-menu.

You may find the subject guides listed below useful for some topics. For more information about library services and facilities see the Library Services pages on MyHallam. 

Please check the latest Sheffield Hallam University Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice for staff and students. 


The health and safety of students and staff is our top priority. In line with national public health guidance regarding COVID-19, and to protect you and help stop the spread of coronavirus, Adsetts and Collegiate libraries closed on 5pm Monday 23rd March until further notice.

Please check our dedicated online guide for more information and to find out how to make the most of your library off-campus.

If you cannot get online from home, access specialist software, or the other learning resources you need to complete assessments or prepare for examinations, please contact Hallam Help.
