Social policy collection

Main content


The Social Policy program, situated within the School of Social Policy and Practice, focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to use policy in socially relevant ways. The Penn Libraries support the research needs of students and faculty in this program by collecting applicable books/e-books, journals, databases, films, and research materials. There is particular focus on areas of HV (social and public welfare); HN (social history, problems, and reform); HM (sociology and social justice); HD (nonprofit organizations and organizational behavior); E (U.S. history and policy); and RC (medical policy).
