How to Make the Most of Your Social Work Field Placement

Your time here as a social welfare student involves attending class and participating in field placements. Field placements provide opportunities to work in the social work profession under the supervision of those experienced in the field. This is a valuable part of your education here at the University at Albany. To enhance your knowledge and experience regarding to field placements, the Dewey Library has several relevant books and journals. There are also many useful online sources relating to field placements in the social work profession.

Here at the Dewey Library you may want to check out:

In the field: a guide for the social work practicum. William A. Danowski. Boston: Pearson, c2012.
Dewey Library HV 11 D357 2012

Contemporary field social work: integrating field and classroom experience. Mark Doel, Steven M. Shardlow, & Paul G. Johnson. Thousand Oaks, Calif.: SAGE Publications, c2011.
Dewey Library HV 11 D635 2011

The practicum companion for social work: integrating class and field work. Julie Birkenmaier &Marla Berg-Weger. Boston, MA: Pearson A and B, c2007.

In addition to online journal subscriptions, there are also several online sources:

Here at the University at Albany, you are required to complete two field placements. The School of Social Welfare has detailed information on field placementsfor MSW and BSW students. In addition you can learn details about the requirements you will need to fulfill while pursuing your social work degree.

For general information on field work placements, mswprograms.com is a good place to look. Here, you will understand the basics of field placement, general school requirements, and the differences between your first and second year placements.

The OCFS Graduate Student Training Program through the New York State Social Education Consortium provides field placement opportunities to social welfare students. Tuition support for those already working in child welfare services is available as well as stipends for interns.

The Office of Mental Health provides a list of evidence-based practice in mental health field placement sites in New York State. The sites listed are all EBP approved sites for field placement. This is a great resource for those of you interested in EBP and mental health.

Once you’ve graduated, you may want to become a licensed clinical social worker. The New York State Office of the Professions has information on how to obtain your clinical license. Keep this information stored away until you need it! It can be a confusing process but the Office of the Professions helps break down the information into something manageable.

If you have any more questions on field placement resources, please contact our social welfare bibliographer, Elaine Lasda Bergman by email at elasdabergman@albany.edu or phone at 442-3695.

Open Access, or Copyright as a Barrier to Access for Scholarly Work

Once the Internet became established as a communications network for virtually all academic institutions during the last decades of the 20th century, it became clear that scholarly information could be sent almost instantaneously across the network by those who produced it to those who needed to read it. After consideration of the growing phenomenon over the 1980s and 1990s, Earlham College professor Peter Suber created this definition of “open access”:
“Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. What makes it possible is the internet and the consent of the author or copyright-holder.

Commercial publishers for the most part accept scholarly material for publication either for free from the author or they may charge the author fees for publishing, such as in the case of so called page charges. Page charges may range from $100 for each page of the article to $2000 for color illustrations or other special page features. Commercial publishers usually require the author to give them the copyright for the material, then they charge royalty fees, subscription fees or other access charges for those who wish to read or otherwise use the material in order to make their profit. The restrictions and prices imposed by commercial publishers of scholarly materials can be a difficult barrier to access for those who need to read or use the materials. Commercial publishers may also provide free access to users of the material, not require the author to assign copyright to them, and instead charge the author substantive fees to have the material published. This open access offering by publishers is called the “author pays” model. The fees may be equivalent to the amount the publisher may expect to otherwise make from subscriptions or pay-per-use models and may be as high as $2500 for a journal article.

Many see the barriers created by copyright as destructive developments for the scholarly community, noting that if an individual scholar is not able to read all the scholarship in their field due to price restrictions or interlibrary lending restrictions, their scholarship suffers as a consequence. If one can only have access to 80% of what exists in that scholarly field, what is the quality of one’s scholarship? These are troubling issues in the current scholarly communication system.

Because the internet provides many alternatives to commercial publishing for scholars, it is possible to distribute scholarly materials at no cost to the user other than the costs involved in getting access to an internet connection. There are now thousands of free scholarly journals. This free access for users is the open access alternative, and more scholars are taking advantage of it because of the barrier-free access it provides to their work and the subsequent higher impact. When the material is available without copyright restrictions, fees and subscription charges for access, data is beginning to show that the material is used more frequently than copyright-restricted material. By using open access distribution methods, scholars implicitly give permission for use of material free of charge and copies can be made and distributed by whoever wishes to do so without individual permission by the author. Some open access publications are restricted somewhat by Creative Commons licenses that may require use to also include attribution for the original author, or may require that each use also be open access.

The open access alternative is so attractive for so many different reasons that many funding agencies now require scholarly authors to publish the results of their projects in open access venues and the faculties of many institutions are declaring through resolutions that they will publish only in open access venues.

For more information and discussion regarding open access, see the Simmons College Open Access wiki.

Don't Lose Your Stuff: Data Storage Options in the Library

After weeks of meticulously researching your topic, taking copious notes, outlining your ideas and crafting the perfect thesis statement, it’s finally time to actually start writing your paper. Before you do, take a moment to consider how you are going organize and preserve you digital files. The last thing you want to face now is a lost or corrupted file. Fortunately, you have several options to choose from:

S Drive. All UAlbany students, faculty and staff have access to the S drive, which provides each user with 100 MB of personal storage space on the University’s servers. You can access your S drive from any Information Commons computer and from your own computer both on and off campus. The S drive, along with the University’s entire server system, is backed up on a regular basis, making it a safe and secure space to keep your files. More information on accessing the S drive can be found in ITS’s website .

Flash Drive. Flash drives are small, highly portable digital memory devices that are available in a variety of sizes. They are rewritable and can be used with both Macs and PC, regardless of operating system. Some flash drives offer security features such as password protection and data encryption to keep your files secure. Flash drives can be purchased from the University Bookstore, Amazon or any office supply store.

Dropbox. Dropbox is a web-based file hosting service that lets you access your files from multiple devices. A basic account, which is free, will allow you to store, access, organize and share up to 2MB of data from any computer or from your smartphone. A downloadable application is also available that will let you save files directly to a folder on your computer, which will then automatically sync with the Dropbox website and any other device you use that also has the application installed. More information can be found on the Dropbox website [https://www.dropbox.com/].

Whichever storage option you choose, there is one thing you must always remember: do not save your files to a library computer!

For more information on file storage and other technology issues, contact the ITS Helpdesk, or ask the IT Consultant on duty in the library Information Commons. For research assistance, stop by the Reference Desk.

LISA Gets a New Home

LISA: Library and Information Science Abstracts, one of the key Information Science databases, has moved to the ProQuest platform. What does this mean for users? A new interface with some great features!

LISA has a couple of really helpful new search functions. If you are looking for a certain article but only remember a few details about it, maybe a couple of words from the title and the journal it was published in, the Look Up Citation function can help you find it. Looking for statistical information or illustrations related to your research? Try the Figures & Tables Search, which will let you define the exact type of information you want to include (e.g. graphs, maps, photographs).

On the results page, the limiters on the right-hand side will allow you to narrow down your results by categories such as source type and subject heading. There is also a date slider that not only lets you define the publication date range of your results, but also has a bar graph displaying the number of articles in each year. A handy Preview function lets you see each article’s full information without leaving the results page.

Once you have identified articles that you want to use for your project, you have several options. You can print out or save a copy directly from the database or you can email it to yourself or others. The email function has several options: you can send a link to the entry or the actual PDF, customize the exact information that is included in the message, and select which citation style (APA, MLA, etc.) to include. You can also export the citation information to reference management software like EndNote and RefWorks.

Users can set up an email alert or RSS feed based on a search string that will to let them know when new articles on a particular topic are available. You can also create a My Research account with ProQuest that will allow you to save and organize documents and searches on the ProQuest platform among other things. For more information on MY Research and the ProQuest user interface, check out their tutorials on YouTube.

Citation Generators: How to Use Them and What to Look Out For

Citing sources can be a confusing and overwhelming task when you’re doing research. Luckily, there are several citation generators that will make your life a lot easier. In this post we’ll discuss both free and subscription citation generators and common errors to look out for.

If you Google "free citation generator",you will get back thousands of results. There are a lot out there and it can be hard to determine which ones are the best. Luckily, the University Libraries has put together a LibGuide that lists approved free citation generators. We'll discuss a couple here, but for the full list, please visit the LibGuide!

BibMe can help you cite in MLA, APA, Chicago, or Turabian formatting. Created by Carnegie Mellon University, BibMe has an auto fill feature and also allows you to switch between citation styles.

Mendeley is another free citation generator. This program not only automatically generates bibliographies, but it is also part of an academic social network. Mendeley gives users the opportunity to collaborate online with other researchers and has an iPhone app that provides access to papers from anywhere online.

Zotero is highly recommended by the University Libraries. This is a free and open source program that can be used in the Firefox browser. Developed by George Mason University, users can store, manage, and cite sources.

Subscription citation generators are another way to go. NoodleBib is an award-winning site and is highly recommended by the University Libraries. It's only $8.00 a year and in addition to standard citing features, users can save bibliographies online or in Word, and there is a note-taking feature!

EasyBib is $8.99 a year. Users can cite and format 37 types of sources in MLA, APA, Chicago, or Turabian style. Like NoodleBib, users can save bibliographies online or in Word. EasyBib now has an iPhone app as well! With this app, you can scan a book barcode or type in the title and citations will be generated.

EndNote is a popular tool for managing bibliographies and it’s available at the University Libraries. Users can store and manage bibliographic data as well as create bibliographies. For step-by-step instruction on how to use EndNote, please visit our LibGuide.

Citation generators are useful and time-saving tools. However, it is still your responsibility to make sure your bibliographic data is cited correctly. Errors can occur with citation generators and there are common mistakes that you should look out for:

  • Make sure everything is capitalized correctly by checking the appropriate citation guide.
  • With programs that automatically input bibliographic data such as Zotero, make sure the data being imported matches the style guide.
  • If not, you will need to change the citation to reflect the style you are using.
  • Make sure to check the provided citations in databases such as EBSCO,Proquest, CSA, and Scopus. These databases generate citations as if the full text of the article was accessed. However, this is not always the case.

So there you have it! As you can see, there are a lot of good choices when it comes to citation generators. Try some and see what works the best for you! Just remember to check your citations against the appropriate style guide. If you have any further questions about citation generators, please stop by the reference desk, call us at 442-3691, email us, or IM or text us.

Redistricting: New York State and Beyond

On March 19th, a panel of federal judges imposed a court-drawn redistricting plan for New York State’s Congressional districts. The judges stepped into the redistricting process at the behest of a group of community leaders who were frustrated that the State Assembly and Senate were unable to agree on a plan. The panel’s plan reduces the number of districts from 29 to 27, in response to the 2010 census, eliminating a district in the Mid-Hudson Valley and one the covers parts of Brooklyn and Queens.

In a much more controversial move, Governor Cuomo signed a plan redrawing the state’s Assembly and Senate district lines that was developed by the legislature’s majorities, angering many who see it as a violation of his campaign promise to veto any “hyper-partisan” redistricting plan. Cuomo, who signed the plan on the condition that the majorities promise to reform the redistricting process through an amendment to the State constitution, defended the deal by claiming that it was worth it to secure long-term reform.

Redistricting, the process by which congressional and state legislature district boundaries are redrawn to accommodate population shifts, takes place every ten years in response to the decennial population census. As elections to the House of Representatives and state legislatures are based on these districts, redistricting is one of the most important and politically contentions processes in the country. In New York State, it is the legislature’s job to draw district lines, making the process even more problematic. This often leads to gerrymandering, the manipulation of district boundaries to gain advantage for a particular party or politician. If an incumbent feels threatened by a potential opponent in an upcoming election, for example, the opponent’s home can be removed from the incumbent’s district so that he is unable to run for the incumbent’s seat. Alternatively, an incumbent’s house can be carved out of her district and included in a different district, often one that is unlikely to elect her or that is already represented by her party. Gerrymandering can also be used to dilute the impact of a block of voters and is often used to disenfranchise minority voters. An area with a strong minority presence can be broken up in to smaller pieces which are then included in districts that are dominated by the majority, ensuring that only those of a certain race or religion are elected.

While gerrymandering has long been a part of the redistricting process in New York, there is evidence that district lines have become more and more political. In 2008, more than half of the state’s incumbent legislators were reelected with more than 80% of their district’s vote, while in 57 districts incumbents ran unopposed . In fact, a recent report gave New York’s redistricting process a failing grade.

Despite the deal that Como made with the legislature, many are skeptical that reform is coming to the State’s redistricting process anytime soon.

The Libraries have many resources on the issues surrounding the redistricting process, including:
