Supplementary Materials for State Penitentiary Library Project. Final Performance Report.
Hull, Jane A.
This report describes how a Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI Library Literacy Program grant was used to improve the literacy and coping skills of illiterate and functionally illiterate inmates incarcerated at the Mississippi State Penitentiary. A second objective of this literacy program was to produce an annotated bibliography of selected materials. The report includes descriptions of the selection, purchasing, cataloging, and distributions processes for the following types of literacy materials: high interest/low vocabulary items; book/audiocassette sets; coping skills books; and career/vocational books. Information is provided about the bibliographies' content categories, production, and dissemination, as well as circulation of the materials and inmate responses to the program. Concluding this report is a list of the 24 material catalogs consulted during this program. (MAB)
