WebWacker software allows you to Whack a site to differing levels so
that you can burn it to a CD. The teacher from a home PC with Internet
access could, using this software, download a website/webpage so that
you can use materials from the Web in classes that don't have Internet
Access. The vendor is www.bluesquirrel.com.

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.

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
