A Demonstration of the Interrelating of Library and Basic Education Services For Disadvantaged Adults. Final Report, Alabama Model Center.
In the past year, the Alabama project has tried to find methods for linking the services of adult education and libraries with a total of approximately 400 adults in designated areas of Birmingham and Jefferson Counties. Specific objectives included the coordination of services, community agency referral, recruitment, feedback on utilization of materials, library interpretation, inter-agency cooperation, staff orientation and selection of materials. Gaining the support of local decision-makers was also considered to be basic to the success of the project. To achieve the objectives, an average of 50 teachers of the Adult Basic Education participated either directly or indirectly in a part of the year's program. The Birmingham Public Library, 16 branches, and five bookmobiles including the Jefferson County Free Library cooperated with the model center to make the service more effective. This report describes activities, analyzes data and explains what happened as a result of the coordination and/or services. All evidential materials are included in the latter half of the document.
