RCS is pleased to announce a new resource tool, titled [RESOURCE MAPS], found at the top of the far left “RESOURCES” column.
[RESOURCE MAPS] provides a general overview and live links for all significant publications and other information, related to Reentry Courts, both on site and linked to this site. More importantly, it provides specific audiences, whether conventional or online, with special resource suggestions for their individual information needs (typically keyed to a numbered agenda).
This new tool allowed RCS to provide suggested reading for both a BJA sponsored Reentry Court Focus Group as well as the full day Reentry Court Symposium, and a state court managers presentation recently held at the Boston NADCP Conference. In each case, an agenda was numbered and keyed to a specific “RESOURCE MAP” in the far left column. Use the keyed agenda and specific resource map to follow the presentations you attended, or at home, through suggested publications and linked resources.
