Whether you are new to the Criminal Justice program or already entrenched, here are some highlights of resources to help put your research on the right track:

  • Criminal Justice Research Guide: the go-to subject guide for the library’s print and online resources for criminal justice
  • Video Tutorials Repository: a collection of the library’s video tutorials on conducting research, locating library resources, and learning about library services
  • National Criminal Justice Reference Service: contains more than 220,000 collection records for criminal justice, juvenile justice, and substance abuse resources housed in the NCJRS Virtual Library collection. This includes more than 60,000 online resources and all known Office of Justice Programs works. (note: open access source)
  • Dissertations: directions for accessing the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global database to find published dissertations on your research topic
  • APA Style Guide to Electronic References: the official guidelines for citing electronic resources in APA style (note: Click on the “View or Print” link to access. You will need to enter your first and last name as well as your Brandman ID# for access.)

As always, Ask a Librarian if you need further assistance.
