The Law Library Touch Screen is an Initiative developed to make legal research accessible to inmates – a requirement set forth by the courts. The kiosk is built rugged and durable, designed to withstand use in a high security environment. Through the simple use of its digital touch screen interface, the kiosk provides inmates access to a large legal database, while simultaneously helping them develop both research and digital literacy skills.
Kiosks are available at every institution and positioned in restricted movement areas, such as administrative segregation. The data can also be accessed on desktop computers located in the general population yard libraries. The accessibility also proves beneficial to staff, who were often challenged with moving inmates, to provide inmates access to their research.
Available at all institutions
