How to find Books

Books about criminology and criminal justice can be found in two main ways: by searching the online FSU Library Catalog and by browsing the Libraries' collection.

When searching the online catalog, a basic search will let you search by keyword, title, author, subject or call number. An advanced search will let you search by a combination of these fields, as well as by format, language, location, and date.

Library of Congress Classifications

The following Library of Congress classifications may be useful when browsing the shelves at Strozier Library for additional materials on criminology and criminal justice. The majority of the 'HV's (Social Pathology, Social and Public Welfare, and Criminology) and 'K's' (Law) are on the fourth floor. Additional materials (such as government documents, micromaterials, media, and reference books) may be found on the ground floor. You should also check out the link on this page for the FSU College of Law Research Center for more information.
