Criminal Justice: Find Books

The Criminal Justice program provides students with an education based in a liberal arts core and interdisciplinary criminal justice curriculum. The criminal justice aspect focuses on law, law enforcement, and corrections.

Textbooks on Reserve

Some physical textbooks are available on reserve. Check your syllabus for the textbook and the edition. The library may have an older edition than what is required for your class.  A RCBC student ID with a current semester sticker and an account balance under $10 of fines is required to check out a reserve textbook. Reserve textbooks can be borrowed for up to 2 hours (exactly). Reserve textbooks returned late (even by 1 minute) will result in fines. Reserve textbooks are not allowed to leave campus.

NOTE: the library currently does not have any access to online textbooks

New Books!

Suggested Reading

Please check the catalog or databases, or contact RCBC Library to see if book is currently available. Here are a few suggestions:

Need A Book We Don't Have?

  • RCBC Library is part of the Burlington County Library Sysytem (BCLS)

    • Your RCBC Library barcode allows you to check out physical material at other BCLS branches! (separate BCLS Library card needed to be able to access their online resources) 

    • If another branch has a book that you are looking for, either call them to have it placed on hold for you, or we will be happy to call them to have them place a book on hold for you. Note: a book that shows up as being in another branch may be currently in use by another patron or otherwise not on the shelf, so save yourself a trip and call to double check the book's availability.

  • Faculty Book Requests

    • For more information, please contact Rachel Pieters at or ext. 1269.

Print Books

Print books are arranged on the shelf in Library of Congress Call Number order. Each call number begins with an alphanumeric base (e.g., "BF109.J8") that is followed by a cutter and a date of publication (e.g., "A25 1993"). See a librarian if you need assistance.

Call Number Range (Where to Find Books on the Bookshelves)

  • HV 6001 - HV 9920.5 - Crime and Delinquency
  • K - Law in general


Ebooks are accessible directly from the Library catalog. If you're interested in finding ebooks only, head to eBook Collection. To log in, use the barcode located on the back of your student ID and your pin number. You have the option to download ebooks to a device, but we strongly recommend reading them online to take advantage of the full suite of available tools. Create a personal account using your Library barcode and PIN to manage and organize your ebook reading and research.
