Preach the Word, Reach the Prison: Creating Theological Libraries in Prisons

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For several years, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary has had a fully operational and accredited extension at Darrington Prison in Rosharon, Texas that issues Bachelor of Science degrees in Biblical Studies. This session will focus on the efforts of SWBTS Libraries to support these students by teaching them to organize their library, assess collection needs, and training inmates on best practices of libraries. The session will contain videos from students and professors on how the library has impacted student learning. In addition, the session will focus on how student library workers have created their own infrastructure alongside the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to create their own electronic database. Those who attend the session will also learn the process of how SWBTS Libraries have been able to use that database to include public domain ebooks and SWBTS dissertations. We may work with other librarians from other institutions as we develop this idea. Other librarians from SWBTS could also be added to the presentation as we evaluate budget.
