Welcome to the subject guide for Criminology. This guide is designed to direct you to the essential resources for your subject .  The guide has been compiled by your Subject Librarian.

The guide has been divided into different sections such as books,  journal articles and web resources. When selected each of these tabs  expands to give you a further menu with more specific options such as 'books new to the library' or key information databases.

This guide covers the core resources you need for day-to-day study and research.  However, you may sometimes find other subject guides useful for specialised topics. For more information about library services and facilities generally see the Library Services pages on MyHallam.
