Guidelines for Libraries to Serve Special Patrons.
Cheeseman, Margaret; And Others
A general discussion of handicapping conditions includes how librarians should be aware but not overwhelmed by such conditions, and how librarians can accommodate people with handicaps through adequate physical facilities and specialized attention. Suggestions for meeting the needs of special patrons include factors to be considered in dealing with the blind, the deaf, and the mentally retarded. Information sources both for aid in planning buildings or renovation, and for organizations concerned with specific impairments are listed. (MBR)
