Bouloukos, Adam C., Dennis C. Benamati, and Graeme R. Newman.. "Teaching Information Literacy in Criminal Justice: Observations from the University of Albany" Journal of Criminal Justice Education 6.2 (Fall 1995): 213-233.

"The last decade has seen a tremendous expansion in the availability of electronic information in all academic disciplines, including criminal justice. Scholars, practitioners, and students of criminal justice are no longer limited to the material contained within their institutions' libraries.
