    There is now a research guide available on the Titanic to support the upcoming events around the 100th anniversary of it sinking.  You can see it at:  Please ask Tracy Ruppman or Susan Wardzala if you have any questions about it.

    We have had the index Criminal Justice Periodical Index for many years, but the faculty felt that Criminal Justice Abstracts would fit their needs better, so you will see a change in the databases listing from CJPI to CJA.  All the subject guides have been switched from one to the other.  The database list will contain both for a short period of time while we use up the end of our subscription to CJPI, then it will disappear from there.

    There is considerable overlap between the 2 databases, but CJA indexes more (and especially more international) journals and contains more full-text journals. If any researchers are looking for CJPI, have then try CJA, I am sure they will be pleased.  Let me know if you have any questions.


    Our new ILL proxy system is live! To request a proxy account, the faculty member should complete the form at or send an email to Of course, feel free to just refer any interested patrons to me.

    After we receive the request, we will create an ILLiad account with a username and password for the faculty to distribute at their discretion.
