PLSN Reference Volunteer Training
Join the Prison Library Support Network (PLSN) for the first volunteer orientation for the new and *entirely volunteer-powered* Reference Project. After attending this orientation, you will be able to remotely answer reference questions mailed to PLSN from people incarcerated in correctional facilities.

What is this project about? Controlling and restricting information access is a powerful form of violence used by the prison industrial complex. PLSN is committed to helping incarcerated people access information and do research on their own terms. PLSN has created a structure for volunteers (that's you!) to remotely answer research questions mailed to us by people in facilities around the country with care and expertise. PLSN does this work as volunteers to ensure our professional and institutional safety is never prioritized over the people who need our solidarity.

Please email plsn_nyc@protonmail.com with any questions and visit the in-progress Reference Project site for more info: https://plsn-reference.tumblr.com/
