In many New York county correctional facilities, computers are available to inmates for educational purposes; however access to the Internet is not. This has presented difficulty with instructors, who would like to download materials to a CD for instructional use but cannot access the Internet from their work site.

Here in NY, computers are not allowed in the correctional facilities.

Subject: [Technology 1029] Inmate computer use statistics?



Hi, I'm new to this listserve, I'm a MLIS student at Wayne State and am trying to find
some current info on inmate access to computers. I've found some older
statistics, but nothing after 2000. I'm particularly interested in issues regarding
internet access to prison inmates, and the degrees of technology literacy among
inmates. I'd appreciate any leads.
Thanks,
Anna
