Morehead State Univ., KY. Appalachian Adult Education Center.
The major categories and subcategories of the information needs of disadvantaged adults are listed. The list was compiled by the Appalachian Adult Education Center (AAEC) in its research and demonstration projects and by consultants to the center from other projects working with adult information needs. The list can be used 1) to assess library collections of materials in life coping skills areas; 2) to select materials for adults in coping skills areas; and 3) to develop materials to meet the information needs of disadvantaged adults. The AAEC has used the list as the categories for a bibliography of print and non-print materials. Major categories of the list are: advocacy, aging, children, community, consumer economics, education, family, health, housing, insurance, jobs, leisure, relating to others, relocation skills, self, taxes and transportation.
