New Interface for National Criminal Justice Reference Service

The National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS) is a comprehensive bibliographic database funded by the federal government. The University at Albany Libraries now subscribes to this database through the Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA) platform.

This resource covers roughly 197,000 criminal justice publications. The most robust aspect of NCJRS is its collection of reports from federal, state, and local governments and organizations. The database coverage runs from 1972 to the present.

NCJRS access is available from the library Databases and Indexes page. If you use NCJRS, let us know your thoughts about the CSA platform. We welcome your comments –whether made on this blog or directly to a librarian.
