Annotation: This 1969 report describes the methods used by the Correctional Training Resource Center in providing support for correctional training, as are the information services to planners provided by the Criminal Justice Planning Resource Center.
Abstract: The Correctional Training Resource Center provides technical assistance for training development by (1) collecting, organizing, and evaluating training materials and methods; (2) disseminating training materials in the form of newsletters and resource packets; (3) maintaining an inquiry answering service for the corrections field; and (4) providing onsite consultative services to grant award States. In response to the increasing number of requests for bibliographies and evaluated documents on subjects of paramount importance to planning concerns, the National Council on Crime and Delinquency established the Criminal Justice Planning Resource Center as a specialized service of the council's information center. Major activities have been (1) the compiling of newsletters which contain up-to-date listings of State planning agencies, news items, abstracts of significant documents of significant interest to planners, selected bibliographies on given topics, excerpts from important speeches and articles, and descriptions of specified planning activities in certain States; (2) the development of 97 separate resource packets, digests, or reprints for all State, regional, and local planning agencies on a variety of subjects; and (3) inquiry answering.
