Libraries support their communities in many ways. Increasingly libraries are being called on to support users with high psycho-social needs through the provision of tailored resources, spaces and services. Social Workers working from libraries are in a unique position to provide such services to library users, and to assist library staff in working with their communities in these ways.
Charles Sturt University educates Social Work students, and Librarianship students and is involved in related research and in the building of a Social Work in Libraries Symposium series and Community of Practice. This site brings together resources that can be used by Social Work students and practitioners, Librarianship students and library workers, and all others who have an interest in the future of both professions and their relationship together.
