f) Chatman, Elfreda (1999). A Theory of Life in the Round. Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 50, p. 207.

Chatman studied the social factors of life in a women’s prison and offers conclusions about how prison culture influences prisoners’ views of information. She describes a number of observations that could help a correctional librarian meet the needs of her patrons, especially if the librarian is willing to accept that she serves the patrons as an outsider. The librarian must also accept that in order for something to be true, in prison, it must be validated by the social norms of the small world, rather than the outside world. The reliability of a source may not be as important as the potential for use. “A life in the round [i.e., in prison] is one lived within an acceptable degree of approximation and imprecision. It is a life lived with a high tolerance for ambiguity” (Chatman p.213).
