“The Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics has been produced at the Hindelang Criminal Justice Research Center (University at Albany, SUNY) since 1973. Originally published annually in print format, it is now available as a free Internet resource. Funding for this resource has been provided by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (U.S. Department of Justice). 

As of July 31, 2012 the Justice Department will no longer be funding the project. Staff at the Hindelang Center are investigating possible commercial publishers for the Sourcebook.” (Source: law and government librarian listserv.)

You won’t find this news at the U.S. Department of Justice blog or at their Justice News site, but the USDOJ site has lots of other news.

Whether you’re researching juvenile sex offender laws or marijuana taxation or jails or something in between, you will want to use an Index, that is, “indexes to periodical literature,” including magazine, journal, newsletter, and other print and online specialty or general publications indexes.

Indexes save you time, lots of time, and enable to you to locate articles you might otherwise miss if you search only full-text resources or simply “Google” a subject.

Most of the following indexes are online, but none is free online, although one or more may be “free” to institutional members, e.g. public library cardholders, educational institution students, staff, and faculty, and professional associations, to name a few groups that offer no-charge online index and other database and literature searching to their members.
