Welcome to the MPS resources guide!
Throughout the guide's sections you'll find our suggestions for key resources and information for MPS course subject areas.
To get you started, here are the key shelfmark areas in the library for MPS resources. Generally you will find MPS resources at shelfmarks beginning with HV (books - floor 1 and journals - floor 3) and K (these are Law books and journals which are housed together in the Law Library, floor 3).
|Police. Detectives. Constabulary
|Penology. Prisons. Corrections
|Jurisprudence - Criminology
|Public law - Criminal law and procedure
The easiest way to find the resources you are looking for is to use Library Search. Details are in the box below.
Our discovery tool, Library Search, will look for books, journal articles and more in one quick easy search - a great place to start your research. The results list also includes full-text links to subscribed content, like articles and textbooks.
To search Library 'Search all' you can use keywords relevant to your topic, author names or the title of the source.
For a more comprehensive search, individual databases offer greater functionality and give full access to a tailored suite of resources for your subject. To find out the database available in your subject, look for your programme in our Subject Guides, or you can view and access all our Databases alphabetically on the Databases A-Z webpage.
