Correctional Facility Librarianship

The world of corrections provided a unique proving ground for the information skills developed as an ESU undergraduate student. During this experience I worked at El Dorado Correctional Facility, deleting records for lost items at a prison, repairing books, and observing library function in a medium-maximum security state prison. At the Douglas County Jail I selected items and weeded the collection, supervised those who were incarcerated while teaching them a work skill as they joined me in cataloging the items I had acquired and participated in workshops held in the library. During the interum period between these two sites I completed a series of ride-alongs with local law enforcement agencies to further explore the criminal justice system as a whole.

The experiences I gained from working as a librarian in a corrections environment are documented in the following powerpoint and it's corresponding outline.
