Library of Congress, Washington, DC. National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
The bibliography lists approximately 150 references (1973-1983) on orientation and mobility for visually impaired individuals. Citations are organized alphabetically by author's name within five major topic areas: general works, manuals and curriculum guides, research literature, mobility for special populations (multiple disabilities, children and adults in rural areas), and mobility aids (canes, electronic aids, guide dogs, mobility maps). Citations include title, publisher information, date, and a brief abstract. The final section lists resources of four types: professional associations and consultant agencies, colleges and universities that offer courses in orientation and mobility, schools that train and supply guide dogs to blind persons, and sources for purchasing mobility aids.
