Q. What heading would 'human services" be under?

Would social services be another name for Human Services?


Hi Wanda,

Can you clarify your question please? When you ask about the heading Human Services would be under, are you referring to how to search for it in the Online Library databases? Or would you just like more information about Human Services?

Social Services and Human Services are related.  Human Services seems to be a large field that includes a wide range of different occuplations.  Some Human Services careers may fall under the Social Services umbrella, but not necessarily all Human Services careers.  You can learn more information about Human Services through the Bureau of Labor Statistics, here and here.

You can also learn more through Learning Express Library.  You can access Learning Express Library under the Find Articles button in the Online Library.  You will need to sign up for a personal (free!) account to use Learning Express Library.  Then click on Job & Career Accelerator, then Explore Occupations.  You can click on Explore by Keyword, and search for "human services."

If you wish to find articles in the Online Library about Human Services, I would recommend searching ProQuest Central and Academic Search Complete, both available under the Find Articles button in the Online Library.  You can use the search term:

"human services"

Be sure you add in the quotation marks to bring back the exact phrase.  You may also want to check off the Full Text box to only bring back results with the article attached.  You amy also want to check off the Peer Reviewed box if you need peer reviewed or scholarly articles for your paper.

Please let us know if you have any other questions!
