Justice Health Libraries
All too often, academic research gets published in competitive, peer-reviewed journals that are well regarded yet largely unknown to the general population. Lloyd's Justice Health Libraries (JHL), which incorporate rigorous methodologies, synthesize all studies on a certain health condition, a certain demographic characteristic, or a certain justice setting, and provide users with searchable databases of available literature on that topic. For example, users may search for all studies on tuberculosis in justice settings, all studies that examine race issues in justice settings, all studies that examine healthcare in community based correctional settings, and any combination of those factors. If someone wanted to know the scope of research on tuberculosis among African American boys in prison, our databases allow for that search. Even more, our databases interact with a mapping program created by our Chief Technical Officer, Jack Chirieleison, which provide users the ability to search interactive research databases.
The Justice Health Libraries are sponsored in part through the Agency on Healthcare Research Quality.
