Serial Killers Information

You can find information about individual serial killers in newspaper and article databases.  We have found that Science Direct includes information on serial killers, as does Medline.

Keep in mind that for pre-1995 information, you may have to use the print New York Times Index  and the Reader's Guide Full Text or Reader's Guide Retrospective for older articles.    Also, JSTOR is a database that indexes older journal literature. 

Use as keywords the criminal's real name as well as nickname.

Here are two print encyclopedias in the reference room of the library.  See the librarian for more help.
