A Survey of the Physically Handicapped of Nebraska, the Parameters of Expanded Library Service.
The purpose of this study was to determine the total number and distribution of the physically handicapped in Nebraska in order to provide them with adequate library service. The report defines the physically handicapped as "residents of the United States certified by competent authority as unable to read normal printed materials as a result of physical limitations." Three sources were used to establish the number of physically handicapped: (1) all physicians who would come in contact with the physically handicapped, (2) all nursing homes and state institutions in Nebraska, and (3) all county offices of public welfare in the state. The report describes the present and projected distribution of the 683 physically handicapped persons, their age, sex, and whether or not they are institutionalized. (CC)
