Project poster

This project delivers research with an emphasis on the restriction of prison reading materials and the various implications that poses on intellectual freedom as well as the safety and security of these practices. Through comprehensive analysis of data, policy, and methodology of published works, it became possible to conduct surveys of institutional library professionals to seek raw data to better understand the process and impact of restrictions of library materials. Data supports that intellectual freedom is hindered and that the process of restriction posses an ethical quandary.
