Police officers, scholars, students, researchers, public servants, politicians, policy analysts and others who from time to time exercise their minds in the field of police affairs occasionally face two problems. Firstly, there arises the need for full citation details of works referred to in reports, etc. Such information when required, is usually wanted quickly without having to visit a library or accessing expensive electronic data bases. Secondly, there arises the need to know what other related works a particular writer already referred to may have produced. Again, such information is usually required instantly and not subject to delays imposed by visits to libraries (where available) or access to data bases (where available).
