To search for articles, electronic books, news articles, and journals on your topic please visit the Library's web page at http://my.limestone.edu/library and search the One Search online catalog. In the search box type in the following search term:

   criminal justice system and discrimination 

From off-campus you will be prompted to login with your Limestone email username and password.  This is the same information you use to access The Halo and Canvas.

You will see many journal articles listed.  You can narrow down your search by scrolling down and looking in the left-hand link bar for "Source Types" to limit your results.

You can also use the Library's Research by Subject guide at http://libguides.limestone.edu/content.php?pid=360472&sid=3588815.  Select Criminal Justice and review the list of databases specific to your topic.  We recommend searching Criminal Justice with Full Text, Films On Demand, Issues and Controversies, and TOPICsearch.  Try the following search terms in each database (be sure to limit to full text and scholarly):

   criminal justice system and poverty

   criminal justice system and discrimination

   criminal justice system and economic status

   criminal justice system and race

The library also has many electronic books on the criminal justice system at http://libguides.limestone.edu/electronicbooks.
