What records from Libby Prison that exist are at the National Archives in Washington, DC. As you know the Confederates burned a substantial amount of records when they evacuated Richmond in April of 1865.
I've worked with the Libby prison records. There are very few; for example, there may be one ledger containing the records for one quarter of a year here and there. Don't remember the exact number or dates.
The records were kept in bound ledgers and are in chronological order by date of entry into the prison.
