Correctional Librarian Resources

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

Your State Library Association may have a special, small or institutional library section

Correctional Education Association

American Correctional Association

In addition to the national organization, chapters are active in about 25 states; call 800-222-5646, ext. 0129 to see if a chapter provides local professional activities in your state
