Abstract: Back in the old days (prior to 1993), social work students (BSW, MSW, Ph.D.) would employ a variety of library tools to complete a literature search. Commonly used tools included: Social Work Abstracts, Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature, and a wide diversity of online databases that required a degree in library science to use and charged a fee. Social work researchers witnessed a dramatic move into technology when Social Work Abstracts produced a CD version. This was an improvement. However, now we have UnCover, which may make all other search mechanisms obsolete
