Needs Assessment Report on Michigan Correctional Facility Libraries, 1981-1982.
Site-visit reports for 12 correctional facilities libraries are summarized using the headings of the Policy Directive for Institutional Library Services, and centering only on the general libraries. Libraries studied are categorized as either adequate, minimum but functional, or inadequate. Observations and specific recommendations are presented concerning orientation, the librarian's role, accessibility, selection, additional needs, relationships with outside libraries, other relationships, statewide recognition, standards for collection development and funding, and staffing guidelines and responsibilities. The recommendations are then collectively restated. Appendices provide a preface which is contained in all 12 needs assessment reports and a listing of site visit dates and participants. (LMM)
