On Saturday, November 16, ITHAKA is hosting a breakfast session  to share an update on “Providing Offline Access to High-Quality Library Resources in Prisons”at the 2019 National Conference on Higher Education in Prison in St. Louis, Missouri.

With support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, in 2019 ITHAKA launched an initiative to help improve higher education in prison and reduce barriers for student research. In this session, Danielle Cooper and Kurtis Tanaka will provide an update on the project’s research agenda focused on understanding postsecondary education in prison. Alex Humphreys from JSTOR Labs will discuss a technological intervention designed to increase access to JSTOR, a digital library of scholarly research.  Alex will also preview an improved prototype for accessing JSTOR in an offline environment.
