An outline of a clerical training program for inmate assistants and a user satisfaction survey are also included.Whether the reader is a librarian, a prison official, a public policy maker, or an architect designing or renovating a prison facility, Vogel's guidebook is a bold, thoughtful, and provocative work that is essential reading for developing, establishing and providing library service in a prison.
