Inmate Material Requests
All requests from inmates in the Wyoming correctional system must first be verified by someone on the institution's staff as being for information not available in the institution's library. If the material is not available, the designated institution employee may place a request through interlibrary loan. The materials requested will then be lent to the institution and not directly to the requesting inmate. The Law Library will not copy and mail materials requested by inmates. The decision as to whether to send copies or the whole item rests with the Law Library.
Any Wyoming inmate submitting a request directly to the Law Library will be referred to their institution's library. The only exception will be for "ready reference" type of information (e.g. the address of a court).
Inmates outside of Wyoming requesting information will be referred to libraries within their state. The only exception will be for Wyoming inmates contractually housed out of state--they will be referred to the Education Department at the Wyoming State penitentiary.
All requested material is subject to the United States copyright law; further reproduction in violation of that law is prohibited. The Wyoming State Law Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
