about this item

Conrad discusses policies surrounding prison libraries. The first chapter explores the history of prison libraries, the reason they came into existence and those first policies of use. The second part of the text examines several court cases that have affected use and policy, for good or ill. Many of the cases concern the intellectual rights of prisoners, intellectual rights being one of the cornerstones of a library system's existence. The third part discusses current library policy and presents interviews with prison librarians. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
