Using Pamphlets With Disadvantaged Adults. Public Library Training Institutes Library Service Guide Number Three.
Schmidt, Susan K.
Pamphlets are a useful way of presenting alternative sources of information to disadvantaged adults. Pamphlets are easy to handle and to read, inexpensive, and provide current information of various topics of interest. This brief guide lists sources of free or inexpensive pamphlets and describes various methods for their display in the library, including specifications and costs of several commercial display racks. Pamphlets may either be circulated or given away to patrons. The advantages of both methods are discussed and procedures suggested. As with the other library guides in this series on services to disadvantaged adults, the Appalachian Adult Education Center's Life Coping Skills Materials List is presented and suggested as a basic list of subject areas for any collection geared toward disadvantaged adults.
