Library Services for the Handicapped in Maine; A State-of-the-Art Report.
Martin, Patrick A.
The purpose of this state-of-the-art report is to describe how handicapped readers in Maine receive their special library services as part of the national network. Handicapped readers are defined as those persons who are unable to read conventional print or handle conventionally printed materials because of some visual or physical impairment. The first part of the report, examining Maine's handicapped reader population itself, discusses the actual participants in the program, and describes the state's efforts to spread the special library services to more eligible handicapped persons who are not yet using them. Part two of the report examines Maine's agencies participating in the program of providing special library services for handicapped readers. Looking to the future, the final chapter recommends the continuation and development of library services for the handicapped, and suggests the use of bookmobiles and telephone hook-ups between the handicapped and the libraries.
