The Radzinowicz Library is the specialist criminology library of the Institute of Criminology, a research and teaching department of the University of Cambridge. It is the premier academic criminology collection in the United Kingdom, and one of the major collections worldwide. The library primarily serves the Institute and the University but also the wider community of criminal justice researchers, many of whom are regular visitors. In common with other libraries, financial pressures are a continuing concern, especially because of the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. Outreach and engagement with organisations outside academia add to the distinctive characteristics of the library.

Additional Information: Stuart Stone is the Librarian of the Radzinowicz Library, where he has worked since 1999. This is a pre-print of an article which will be published in Legal Information Management in 2016. It has been developed by the author from a paper given at “Sources and Methods in Criminology and Criminal Justice: a national socio-legal training day” at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies on Friday 20 November 2015. The workshop was jointly organised by the British Library, the British Society of Criminology, the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies and the Socio-Legal Studies Association.
