Where and how would I find English language material on the local religion practiced in Tai O, Lantau Island, China

answer: 

I have to say, I'm not finding much in English. I found out that the village of Tai O is located on Lantau Island. There is much news coverage of that locale in regard to a new International airport being built there, and I think an Asian Disneyland, as well. What helps is if you expand your search to Lantau Island. I found only a few things that may or may not be helpful to your query. I listed a couple of journals and newspapers that specialize in covering this region. I listed some articles I found. First off the bat, some contact information for librarians local to you.

QUESTION: Standardized Chapel Library Project

question / pregunta: 

Are the libraries of private, for-profit prisons subject to the Federal Bureau of Prisons' Standardized Chapel Library Project policy? The librarian to whom I supply materials via ILL is claiming compliance with this policy as a reason to limit inmates' access to religious and scholarly material, but I think it's only enforceable within the federal prison system.
