The Rohrbach Library offers a wide variety of databases for every subject matter. Currently, there are three databases dedicated to criminal justice research. They include:
This database has comprehensive coverage of major journals in criminology, books, and access to governmental and nongovernmental agencies.
The index is the world’s most comprehensive and highest quality social research database.
The database provides full-text documents from over 5,900 news, business, legal, medical, and reference publications including the New York Times.
To access these databases, criminal justice majors can click on the database names above or visit the library’s website: www.kutztown.edu/library. Under the library’s home page, students should hover over the tab “Research Tools” with their mouse and click on “Articles and databases.” Students can then search for a database by subject, journal, or name. Off-campus students may be prompted to sign into these databases using their KU login information.
The Rohrbach Library also offers LibGuides for criminal justice majors at www.libguides.kutztown.edu/CRJ. The guides explain how to find research materials and they include links to the databases as well.
Research librarians are available to help students. Visit Rohrbach Library or call the Research Help Line at 610-683-4165 to talk to a librarian.
