CARL Conference 2022: The Equity Minded Academic Library



Abstract/Presentation Excerpt

These slides accompanied the presentation, Connecting Incarcerated Students to Digital Resources, which was delivered on April 1, 2022, during the general session, at the CARL-ACRL conference. The slides describe Ethan Annis' experience, between December 2019 - March 2022, of leading efforts to incorporate technology and library services into the education of students at Mount Tamalpais College, which educates ~300 incarcerated students inside San Quentin. When Ethan started, there were no computers for student use. By the end of March 2022 there were 35 laptops inside (plus 25 ordered), every student had a Canvas account, computer literacy assessment, tutoring and labs were available, and we had an MOU with the CDCR and had raised funds to expand the program. We hired a full time Director of IT & Library Services who began work on April 4, 2022.
