Criminal Justice

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.


  1. Answer by: Seibert, Jutta
    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. http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/pub/html/cp/2006/cp06st.pdf For previous years please go to: http://www.ncjrs.gov/app/topics/Topic.aspx?topicid=45 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.
