Exploring Social Issues, Information Privilege, and Incarceration with Sociology Students

Students in a Sociology course at a community college investigated social issues with their professor throughout the semester, selecting one to pursue in relation to prisoners. The students attended a library instruction session to locate academic articles related to research questions they developed. These curated sources were meant to be shared with future students who take the same class, including inmates. This unique class assignment required discussions about information privilege as it relates to the access to information inmates have in general, compared to students in academia as well as non-students. Open Access was compared to traditional publishing models and copyright issues were explored. Connections to the ACRL Framework, key takeaways from the experience, and future plans will be presented.
