This is intended as an introductory guide to help students of SHSU -- The Woodlands Center best utilize Newton Gresham Library's resources and services.

Introduction

CRIJ 3378 -- Dr. Bowman-Bowen

 

This guide is intended for use in CRIJ 3378, Introduction to Research Methods, taught by Dr. Bowman-Bowen. Below you will find some key databases and additional resources students may find useful for their coursework. 

 

For additional assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. That's why I'm here! You can find me in person at SHSU - The Woodlands Center, or you can contact me via phone, e-mail, or the chat box on the left. Thanks!

 

Please note: This guide is not exhaustive and is only intended to help students get started in their research. Also, this guide was originally created for Spring 2016's CRIJ 3378 taught by Dr. Bowman-Bowen. Although the guide should prove useful for other CRIJ 3378 courses, this is not its original intention.

Research Databases and Resources

You can see all of our Criminal Justice databases by visiting our Criminal Justice Databases page.

Due to the focus in this class in researching behavioral sciences, our Psychology Databases should prove very useful.

Below are some specific databases I would recommend beginning with:

APA Citations

For introductory information and examples about APA citation, please view our APA Citations guide

Also, please note that although there is not an online full-text version of the official APA guide, Newton Gresham Library and SHSU-The Woodlands Center have copies that you can use. Also, the APA has published an APA Style Guide to Electronic References that can be accessed online. This guide will provide you all the information you need when citing electronic information.

Interlibrary Services

Take advantage of our Interlibrary Services to get your hands on virtually any article or book you need for your research, even if our library does not have access. Please check out the Interlibrary Services page for more information.
