Libraries Behind Bars: Education and Outreach to Prisoners Program Moscone Convention Center
2008 (W)
Description :

The United States incarcerates more citizens than any other country, which presents a pressing issue for civil society. This program brings together a multidisciplinary panel of scholars, moderated by a prison librarian, to raise awareness of the importance of prisoner education in reducing recidivism and improving rehabilitation outcomes. It highlights the role academic libraries play in research on the incarcerated and incarceration institutions, as well as in outreach to incarcerated populations. This is a joint program by ANSS, LES, and LPSS. This program is co-sponsored in name only by ASCLA.
