Professional Associations

American Library Association

Association for Rural & Small Libraries
Correctional libraries face many of the same issues as rural and small libraries: solo professional or paraprofessional; single library to serve patron base that is diverse in regard to education level, literacy, interest, age, ability, etc.; small budget; and in competition for funds with other agency units that provide public services
