Library Service to the Disabled.
Bookmark, v40 n1 Fall 1981
In recognition of 1981 as the Year of Disabled Persons, 10 out of the 13 essays in this issue deal specifically with library service to the disabled; the remaining three discuss the Public Library Association (PLA) Planning Process, the New York State Research Library Resources Access Project, and New York State public library construction needs. Papers on library service to the disabled discuss (1) sources to aid libraries in developing programs for the disabled, (2) university library services for disabled persons, (3) the Radio Reading Service pioneered by the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System, (4) the problems of hearing impaired students in college libraries, (5) services and equipment to improve library service to the hearing impaired, and (6) library programs to serve the visually impaired. Interspersed with the articles are notices on publications, the majority of which relate to disabled persons. National organizations and centers of information are identified in one essay. A total of 35 references contained in six essays and three bibliographies are provided. (RBF)
