Library Services

Reference Services

As part of the Library’s mission to support the information needs of social workers in the greater Cleveland area the reference staff are available to provide assistance to alumni and members of the social work community around social work issues. This service is intended to provide a starting place for you to begin or continue your research and is offered in person or over the phone. If your question involves extensive research and use of a number of information sources you should consider our research and consultation services.

Research/Consultation Services

Librarians at the Harris Library can provide assistance with individual and agency information research needs. We provide basic assistance in formulating your research strategy, show you the databases to use and how to use them. Where available we can help you access similar databases through your local public library and your home or office computer.

Since these services are time intensive, we must ask that you call ahead and schedule an appointment to meet with a librarian. These sessions will run approximately 45 minutes. Monday and Friday are usually the best days to try to schedule an appointment. The Library can also do library research for individual or agency needs for a fee. Our initial consultation is at no charge. Please contact Samantha Skutnik for additional information and fees.


Staff Development Programs.

The Lillian F. & Milford J. Harris Library provides staff speakers for your agency or organization around information seeking and use. Our staff can tailor a program that will fit your information needs. Contact us for additional information.

E-mail services

Alumni e-mail services are e-mail forwarding only. Please go to the Case Alumni Relations site for additional information.
