Could the library purchase a copy of "Death Penalty USA" 2003 and 2005 by Delfino and Day (isbn 978-0972514125 and 978-0972514132)? The books, which are not in our catalog, contain a comprehensive compilation of the cases of executed criminals, which would help me in my research efforts.
Falvey Memorial Library cannot buy the titles which you suggested, because they do not match our collection profile. For factual information on capital punishment I would like to refer you to the annual Bureau of Justice Statics publication on capital punishment.
For previous years please go to:
You may also consult the Library's print collection and will find books on capital punishment in these two sections on the third floor: KF9227.C2 and HV8699.U5
Your public library may be able to buy or loan Death Penalty USA for you.
