Sadoski, Doris; And Others
This 10-day institute provided its 26 participants with: (1) presentations on the need for and methods of providing library services for the deaf and hearing impaired, covering such topics as the cataloging and acquisition of deaf material, and Braille Institute and Library of Congress resources for the physically handicapped; (2) field trips to a motion picture producer of deaf materials, a library network providing teletypewriter (TTY) service, schools for the deaf, and a deaf college library; and (3) presentations on general topics pertinent to the deaf, including infant testing, vocational rehabilitation, counseling, the legal rights of deaf persons, special education, audiology, and the different modes of communication for the deaf (speech, lipreading, signing, fingerspelling, and interpreting). The transcribed proceedings summarize institute activities and provide a glossary of terms related to deafness, a check list for providing library services to the deaf, and case studies related to these services which were used for discussion by institute participants. Lists of participants and guest speakers are given. Appendices include bibliographies, instructions for the provision of storytelling for hearing impaired children, information on captioned films for the deaf, a copy of a questionnaire distributed at the institute, and related items.
