audiobook recording project

As discussed at the last meeting, here are my findings on inmate readings/recordings.

A few examples of other projects:

UW-Madison Jail Library Group (this section is about their audio-recording program, Kids Connection, but the entire site is well organized and informative): http://slisweb.lis.wisc.edu/~jail/volunteer/kc.html

also, Kids Connection uses cassette tapes! http://www.typepad.com/t/trackback/10353/31543468

Another American example, from Indiana, Although not linked directly to the LIS community, it involves educators: http://nationalserviceresources.org/practices/17774

Also, a couple of interesting articles (I have .pdfs of these for sharing):

– Todaro, J. Reaching Beyond Bars: Women’s Storybook Project of Texas. Texas Library Journal v. 83 no. 3 (Fall 2007) p. 128-9.

Although 5 years old, this is the only Canadian prison library survey I could find:

-Curry, A., et. al., Canadian federal prison libraries: a national survey. Journal of Librarianship and Information Science (Folkestone, England) v. 35 no. 3 (September 2003) p. 141-52.

    Thanks, Tara! I am really excited to get going on this project. Can we meet sometime soon to make a plan that we can submit to Karra? Mondays and Wednesdays after work are good for me – and weekends are pretty good too.

    I do have access to a recorder (digital so we can burn cds) – but I bet we could get our hands on a tape recorder as well.
