* Criminology: Find Books

Resources for Criminology Research

Finding Books in the Library

Books are great sources for getting a big overview on a topic, like gun violence or police reform. Most books on criminology are located on the shelves in the call number range of HV 1 through HV 9960.  Just ask a librarian to help you find them. You can also use URSUS and our eBook Databases to help find relevant books on your topic.

If we don't have a book here at USM or in the UMaine system, we can request it to be send from another library with InterLibrary Loan.
