Library Trends 26 (1) Summer 1977: Library Services to Correctional Facilities


Library Trends 26 (1) Summer 1977: Library Services to Correctional Facilities. Edited by Jane Pool.

Because of an increasing awareness of the individual needs and rights of prisoners, brought about partly by riots and uprisings in correctional institutions, reformers have sought to improve the prison environment. Architecture, educational facilities, legal rights of prisoners, visitation rights and "open" prisons, and reentry are all pertinent topics for discussion. This issue of Library Trends has been written to serve as a review and synthesis of the current correctional facility library scene: environment, history, standards, training and research, and finally, service patterns in different types of facilities.

Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
