Delivering Library Services at a Maximum Security Institution: Staff Evaluation.
The survey summarized in this report was administered to 54 sample staff members--school teachers, vocational education and shop instructors, corrections officers, counselors, administrators and secretaries, and inmates who hold responsible jobs--at the Connecticut Correctional Institution-Cheshire, to determine the extent to which the staff has made use of the library since the inauguration of the program in January 1976. Questions regarding frequency of library use, importance in filling information and recreation needs, effects that expansion of collection and hours would have on use, suggestions for future programs, and impressions on what the library is doing and should be doing, are included. The results, which are presented in tables, indicate that staff is willing to improve job performance by using library materials if adequate materials and professional guidance in library use are provided. The questionnaire is appended. (MBR)
