RCL Career Resources Criminal Justice and Law: Introduction


Discover foundational titles for two-year colleges and programs across the Criminal Justice and Law disciplines. This guide features titles reviewed in Choice that are also included in the Resources for College Libraries: Career Resources core bibliography in Criminal Justice and Law. Preview RCL title selections along with the original Choice reviews.

While these guides showcase the overlap between Choice and RCL titles, not every Choice recommended, essential, or Outstanding Academic Title will appear in RCL and likewise, only 10-15% of the RCL: Career Resources selections have been reviewed by Choice. RCL aims to provide a comprehensive subject bibliography aligned with the undergraduate curriculum, meaning it may include books published years ago, not just recent works in a field. Learn more about the RCL core collection.

The titles in the list represent Choice-reviewed Criminal Justice and Law selections as of March 1, 2016. RCL: Career Resources subject bibliographies are continually updated and subject to change. The Criminal Justice and Law subject is maintained by Beth Sheehan, Social Sciences Research Services Librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
