Criminal Justice & Law
Forensic biology often uses materials in both Criminal Justice & Law. To start research, go to the library home page, pick "Research by subject", then one of these subjects. These two pages offer easy acess to both databases and other supporting material, in areas such as expert witnesses, crime scene investigation and how to interpret and find specific laws.
A wide selection of journals, books and government documents on forensic biology is located in all three libraries at the University at Albany.
A growing collection of materials on the science of forensic biology are found in the Science Library. The Dewey Library houses much of the criminal justice collection, as well as legal materials, including books on such topics as expert witnesses, and crime scenes. The University Library (Main) has government documents as well as legal materials.
To find books in biology and criminal justice, select Minerva (our online catalog) from the left side of the library web page.
To find out if we have a journal in print or online, select Minerva, then the journals tab.
To search for journal articles located in those journals, select the "Databases" tab above, then "Biology" or "Criminal Justice".
