Between our voluminous library system and online access to criminal justice crime resources, you have physical or digital access to any publically available report, statistic or Web site you could possibly need to complete your studies.

Bracken Library offers convenient access to more than 1.5 million books, periodicals, microforms, audiovisual materials, government publications, manuscripts, archival records, and other information resources. Librarians can help you access resources not owned by Ball State, including obtaining print and digital items through interlibrary loan services.

Federal, state, and local resources are literally at your fingertips. Through course instruction, and faculty mentoring, you will learn not only to access these databases but also decipher the information to find how the statistics impact the lives of citizens, law enforcement and the community.
