The subject of crime has generated one of the largest bodies of historical and contemporary research material in existence. And since the U.S. Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Street Act of 1968, that amount has grown even larger.

The widely renowned Crime & Juvenile Delinquency collections were acquired and updated to current status by ProQuest in 1985. The material comes from the Criminal Justice/National Council for Crime and Delinquency Collection (NCCD), which has received worldwide acclaim as a primary clearinghouse for criminal justice materials.


ABSTRACTS ON CRIME & JUVENILE DELINQUENCY This powerful research tool provides nearly 40,000 in-depth abstracts of studies published in more than 180 professional journals and also includes: abstracts of material from books, pamphlets, monographs, federal and state documents, dissertations, case studies, task force findings, and statistical analyses. There is also significant material that was never released in print and would be nearly impossible to acquire otherwise.

The abstracts cover the entire spectrum of criminal justice literature from 1968 to current year. The collection spans a broad range of research topics, including: criminal law, criminal courts, juvenile law, juvenile courts, criminal justice reform, law enforcement and the police, crime and the adult offender, correction, probation, prisons and parole, prison reform, drug abuse, and related social issues.

Criminal justice researchers, law and criminology students, law enforcement training academies, and criminal lawyers rely on these abstracts to speed and focus their research. The abstracts provide comprehensive information and are fully indexed, with bibliographic citations.

ACCESS: Index to Abstracts on Crime & Juvenile Deliquency, 1968-1975. Separate indexes available with annual updates. Free with collection.

CRIME & JUVENILE DELINQUENCY DOCUMENTS This collection of documents selected from the NCCD Collection holdings contains nearly 6,000 full-text titles chosen for their timeliness and research value. Documents are selected to meet the in-depth research needs of colleges, universities, public libraries, law enforcement agencies, law schools, and other research institutions focusing on criminology.

The documents include municipal, county, state, federal, and privately generated documents and reports, from the years 1950 to 1990. Titles from earlier years are also represented, as well as vital crime-related literature from sources outside the U.S., such as Australia, England, Europe, South America, and Asia.

This collection is the perfect complement to the abstracts, since it provides in-depth, sophisticated research into specific aspects of crime.

Individual fiches may be purchased from this collection.

MARC records are available for the units from 1978-1990.
