We have a number of resources for completing research on criminal justice and specific trials.
A first stop for general information is the Criminal Justice Research Guide (link is below), which includes all of our relevant databases.
We also specifically recommend the following criminal justice databases:
Subject areas include: criminology; criminal justice; criminal law and procedure; corrections and prisons; police and policing; criminal investigation; forensic sciences and investigation; history of crime; substance abuse and addiction; probation and parole.
Includes an option to search for federal and state legal cases.
National Criminal Justice Abstracts Database
The NCJRS Abstracts Database contains summaries of the more than 210,000 criminal justice, juvenile justice, and substance abuse resources housed in the NCJRS Library collection.
You might also find it helpful to review our newspaper collection. The link to the Newspaper Resource Guide is below.
