The criminal justice collection supports the teaching, learning, research, and other related service activities of the entire university community. Its primary users are faculty, staff, and students of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice (Lincoln Program) in the College of Public Affairs and Community Service, which is based at University of Nebraska-Omaha. Its essential focus is support for the undergraduate curricula for criminal justice. The collection is supplemented through interlibrary loan services whenever special curriculum and research needs of criminal justice faculty and students arise. Although the collection is not developed for the general public and community users, they may benefit from the collection for their information needs. The main focus of the collection is works classified in Library of Congress call numbers HV6000+ (Criminology and Criminal Justice), however, curriculum and research needs of criminal justice are substantially supported by works classified in sociology, social work, and law.
