Q. Where do I find information on criminal cases?

My assignment is to find two criminal cases. The first, a case against another person. The second, a case against property.


Search the Criminal Justice Periodicals database for articles on different crimes and criminal cases. To start, launch the Online Library and then click on FIND NOW under Find Articles. Scroll through the alphabetical list until you locate Criminal Justice Periodicals. You can limit to Full Text and Peer Reviewed (if needed). Some search terms to use:

  • "property crime" or use more specific crimes like burglary 
  • "crimes against person" or more specific like assault or rape
  • you may want to combine keywords like case or court proceeding or trial
You may also want to use the database Research Library (also on the Find Articles & More page) because this database also covers the the topic of law and contains newspaper articles which would have reporting on current criminal cases.
