A Law Library Kiosk is a touch-screen device developed to make legal research accessible to offenders – a requirement set forth by the courts. The kiosk is built to be 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 offenders access to a large legal database while simultaneously helping them develop both research and digital literacy skills.
Kiosks are available at every institution and are positioned in restricted movement areas, such as administrative segregation units. The data can also be accessed on desktop computers located in general population yard libraries.
Available at all institutions
