Nurss, Joanne R.; And Others
This paper reports the results of two surveys conducted to obtain information about adult literacy resource centers in other states and about the needs of Georgia's adult literacy providers for adult literacy resources. Findings indicated that 15 of the 26 states responding to the first survey had resource centers. Information was collected on location, funding, services, and staffing. Responses to the second survey identified the most useful materials. The 20-page survey report is followed by a two-part annotated bibliography of adult literacy resources developed for use by public and private adult literacy providers in Georgia. The first section, Basic Resources for Adult Literacy Providers in Georgia, includes 143 basic resources in these areas identified by the survey: general information; computer-assisted literacy; family literacy; funding sources; instructional methodology; learning disabled adults; new adult readers: bibliographies of books; recruitment and retention; special adult populations; volunteer training; workplace literacy; selected instructional materials; ERIC Digests and bibliographies; and journals and newsletters. The second section, Adult Literacy Research and Technical Information, includes research and theoretical articles and more technical information on adult literacy (52 items) in these areas: general information; assessment; computer-assisted literacy; family literacy; funding sources; instructional methodology; learning disabled adults; and workplace literacy.
