Prison Library standards

Sometimes I get questions on what should go in a prison Library. The Library Standards for Adult Correctional Institutions, 1992. published by ASCLA, American Librarian Association provides some guidelines. the document is outdated and some prison librarians including me, are trying to update. It is taking us a long time because we are scattered across the country, our effort is voluntary, and most of us operate as one person managers.

Some online sources from the Law Libraries can help.
