LACUNY Services for Incarcerated People Roundtable

The Services for Incarcerated People Roundtable provides a forum for librarians who support, or are interested in supporting, library services for incarcerated people to discuss current issues, broaden their understanding, and raise awareness of information barriers within the carceral system. The Roundtable connects CUNY librarians with other librarian-led groups, such as Prison Library Support Network, that provide direct services to incarcerated people, and serves as a resource for CUNY groups such as the UFS Committee on Higher Education in the Prisons and those working in prison education programs. https://lacunysips.commons.gc.cuny.edu/

Roundtable meeting?

  • Hello all,

    I know it is hard to keep track of all the various responses already happening, but it occurs to me that this group might be able to offer some kind of mutual aid workshop, given that many of our students and coworkers just experienced incarceration. Even if the workshop was restricted to librarians, we could review important resources around for library staff to refer to: Legal Aid, etc.

    Would anyone be interested in meeting as as a Roundtable to discuss? We need to have one meeting per semester, I believe?

    Also totally fine if people feel overwhelmed and need to postpone on meeting for awhile!

    Solidarity,

    Rachel
