Coping Skill Categories: Areas of Information Need for Disadvantaged Adults. Eleventh Revised Edition.
Morehead State Univ., KY. Appalachian Adult Education Center.
Consultants and staff of the Appalachian Adult Education Center developed coping skills categories based on extensive work with adult basic education programs and in public library services for disadvantaged adults. The coping skills categories are subject areas in which most adults need information to cope effectively with the problems of everyday living. Adult educators can use the categories as a checklist for the information needs of the client or community, as a tool for assessing a library's collection, as categories for shelving a special collection of coping skills materials, and as subject areas for instructional programs. The categories are displayed in outline form. (Author/PF)
