Criminal Justice: Find Books

How to find books, articles, and other resources related to the study of Criminal Justice.

Anna Maria College Library Catalog

To find a specific book or to find a book on a specific topic, your best bet is to start first with Mondor-Eagen Library resources, then work your way out electronically and geographically. Here are the steps and links to follow. At each level, you can log in with your library card and make an electronic request.

  1. Search the Mondor-Eagen Library catalog. Click here for a video tutorial on how to use the catalog.
  2. If we don't have what you need, expand your search to include all of the C/W MARS libraries in Central Massachusetts.

If you still cannot find the material, try searching for it on WorldCat Discovery OR submit an interlibrary loan request to us.  

Reference Books

Don't forget to check our Reference section!  It's the first set of shelves you see when you walk into the library.  Here you will find dictionaries and encyclopedias relevant to your area of study.  If you need help in your search, please feel free to ask.
