The NCJRS Virtual Library and Abstracts Database have moved to the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) website. Access to abstracts and resources, as well as library services, remain available to you through this site. This move streamlines access to OJP's content and services while offering improved Abstracts Database capabilities and enabling future enhancements.

The National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS) Virtual Library contains bibliographic information and abstracts of all of the resources housed in the NCJRS Virtual Library, including: federal, state, and local government reports; books; research reports; journal articles; and unpublished research. Subject areas cover a variety of topics, including corrections, courts, drugs, law enforcement, juvenile justice, crime statistics, victims, and more.

Opinions or points of view expressed in the documents are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official position or policies of the U.S. Department of Justice.
