Criminology Collections

The criminology collections are housed in two locations: the Bodleian Law Library and the Bodleian Social Science Library.

The Bodleian Social Science Library (SSL) houses the research and teaching collections of the former Centre for Criminology Library and is the primary library for teaching support in this subject. The SSL also holds a core journal collection and material reflecting the research interests of the Centre since it was founded in 1976.

The Bodleian Law Library has extensive UK legal deposit and foreign collections covering all aspects of law and includes historical and expansive works on crime, criminal justice and penal systems.
