Summer transitions for Criminal Justice databases

Written by Jon Ritterbush, E-Resources and Serials Librarian

With the launch of LOPERSearch in February 2014, UNK student and faculty researchers have enjoyed an improved search experience across dozens of article databases and the library’s catalog. As of this month, LOPERSearch results are now further enhanced with the addition of two criminal justice-related databases:

Criminal Justice Abstracts – Provides cover-to-cover indexing of over 580 journals related to criminal justice, criminology, corrections, and policing.

National Criminal Justice Reference Service Abstracts – Thousands of summaries of important law enforcement and criminal justice publications including books, government reports, research reports, journals, and unpublished research.

These two databases – hosted by EBSCO – may be searched individually, together, or combined with other EBSCO databases such as PsycINFO and Academic Search Premier. LOPERSearch users will also see entries from these two criminal justice databases included within their search results. Due to overlapping coverage with these new EBSCO databases, the Library’s subscription to ProQuest’s Criminal Justice Periodicals will be allowed to expire June 30, 2015.

These new databases are linked from the “Articles & Databases” webpage under the alphabetical listings and under the subject of “Criminal Justice.” Please contact Jon Ritterbush, the librarian liaison to Criminal Justice, if you have any questions about this transition.
