a) Each correctional facility shall provide opportunities for access to library services and legal materials. However, general library services and/or direct access to a law library may be limited, restricted or denied if library privileges have been abused or in the event that institutional safety or security may be jeopardized. An alternate means of access to legal materials and to prepare legal documents shall be provided in these instances.
b) The amount of books and materials a committed person may accumulate may be limited where the amount poses a fire, sanitation or security hazard.

Committed persons may assist one another in the preparation of legal documents to the extent consistent with institutional security. Committed persons shall not receive compensation for such assistance.

b) Committed persons who are without funds shall be provided and charged for copying services for legal materials which may not be reasonably duplicated by other means. Legal documents shall be deemed to mean pleadings, complaints or petitions, briefs, exhibits, affidavits, notices of filing or other documents to be filed in a court of law or other forum in which a suit may be filed or which are required to be served upon opposing counsel or parties.
