Abstract
The Social Work Education collection consists of publications, articles, and professional information on the pedagogy of social work and the correlative topic of social work as a profession. These holdings did not originate as an organic collection created by one organization or person, but were collected from materials in the USC School of Social Work Library or else from materials donated to the CSWA, which were then incorporated into this collection. The geographical scope of the material includes not only southern California, but the United States as a whole. The collection also includes material by a dean of the School of Social Work, University of Southern California.
