Many resources exist in addition to those offered through the library. One excellent resource for the criminal justice discipline is the United States Government. The U.S. government offers access to documents and publications that may be critical to your research in the criminal justice field. A great place to start your research is to begin at the USA.gov website. This will allow you to search for information "by service or government agency" (Lamb). Find datasets and statistical information by visiting DATA.gov and the Federal Committee on Statistical Methodology.
