Finding Books at MSU Libraries
We have lots of books about criminal justice and related topics in the Main Library! Most of the collection is located in the Library of Congress Call Number range in the H's and primarily within HV. These books are housed in the East Wing of the Main Library on the 3rd floor.
The best way to search for books in by using the Library Catalog. Once you find one or two books that match your topic, you can browse in that call number area for additional relevant titles.
