Criminal Justice Abstracts offers much more content—for a broader span of years—than I thought possible, and the content is first-rate. So is the delivery system. It gets a ten and an enthusiastic recommendation. Not just for libraries serving criminal justice researchers, this file will be used by researchers across the disciplines (I started to list the subject areas, but there are too many!). Highly recommended for public, academic, and special libraries.
