Q. I am looking for an angle on relating gang related drug crimes and what they have an effect on.

It is for a thesis. Do you have any suggestions on research, or sources?



You may wish to hone in on a particular effect of gang related drug crimes, such as a specific population or geographic area, age group, gender role, etc. If you need help developing your topic, we should make an appointment and we can work on refining your topic together.

In terms of which resources to utilize, I suggest starting with some database searching through databases recommended in our Criminal Justice libguide, which can be accessed here: http://libguides.mercyhurst.edu/content.php?pid=81759&sid=608494. Start with databases specific to the field of criminal justice and then move to databases that span multiple disciplines, such as Academic Search Complete. 

If you would like to make an appointment for further help, please let me know.
