MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
70 e-books for the provision of libraries of correctional institutions were purchased at the expense of funds received from the production activities of the penal system.
Due to the fact that updates are regularly made to the legal acts of the Russian Federation, there was a need to replenish the libraries of the colonies with up-to-date legal literature.
Convicts are allowed to use e-books only in the reading room of libraries. These books cannot be connected to the Internet, they do not have slots for using memory cards and lack the function of audio and video recordings. The convicts not only read, but also make extracts from legal literature.
Employees of the institutions monitor the safety of e-books and the updating of legal literature.
