SEARCH QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

What is "Find in a Library" and how is it helpful?
Many of the publications from NCJRS' sponsoring agencies and those housed in the Abstracts Database collection are available at local libraries and NCJRS provides the "Find in a Library" service function for you to search these collections. At times it may be faster, cheaper, and/or more convenient for our users to access documents they find on NCJRS.gov at a library in their area. The icon Find in a Library is presented throughout the NCJRS site in various lists, search results, and on Abstract pages. When you click on Find in a Library NCJRS will send a formatted search to WorldCat, a consortium of over 10,000 libraries worldwide. On the WorldCat site you can discover if the document you are interested in is available in a local library. To learn more about this visit the Obtain Documents section of the Abstracts Database Online Tutorial.
