Road 2 Reentry Research Study

In Spring 2024, with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Road 2 Reentry Research Study was launched. Led by Dr. Megan Threats, this study aims to better understand the experiences of formerly incarcerated people living in the state of Michigan following their release from incarceration. The study is particularly focused on learning about their experiences seeking and receiving information and services to support their reentry, and their perceptions of public libraries as community institutions.   


The project is a 2-year community-based study with a goal to use data to understand the reentry-related information needs and practices of formerly incarcerated people, and how various factors shape their access to critical reentry services such as healthcare and technology literacy and engagement with institutions during the reintegration process. The overall goal will be to develop a state-wide reentry planning guide for formerly incarcerated people living in the state of Michigan.
