Criminal Justice: Finding Books


Books can be found by searching  MaagNet  or  the OhioLINK Catalog.   Use the OhioLINK catalog to locate items available from other OhioLINK institutions. These items can be requested and delivered to Maag Library for pickup.
Criminal Justice resources are located throughout the library: items in the Reference Room, Serials and in the circulating collection are all arranged according to the Library of Congress Classification System. Once you locate a book or journal that is useful, you can locate information on the same or similar topics by locating the same call number in the other areas of the library. See Call Numbers and Floor Plans below for assistance. Some suggested LC call numbers:
  • HV 7231-9960 - Criminal Justice
  • HV 6074 - Fingerprints
  • HV 6069 - Juvenile Delinquency
  • HV 7551-8280.7 - Police
  • HV 8665 - Prisons
 To find books on your topic, search MaagNet or the OhioLINK catalog using subjects or keywords. Some examples of subject searches are:
  • Recidivism
  • Violent crimes
  • White collar crimes
  • Criminal investigation
  • Police psychology
