Deposit Collections for Disadvantaged Adults. Revised Edition.
One of a series on library services to disadvantaged adults, this guide explains the use of deposit collections, small library collections placed in easily accessible locations. A collection of materials in a familiar place is one way to make information available to people who don't visit the library and to encourage them to come. The library staff must become familiar with the neighborhoods in which disadvantaged adults live and identify the most frequently visited places for deposit collection sites. The collections should include easy-to-read materials chosen to meet adult information and recreation needs. To continue to be effective, the collections must be maintained regularly. Book costs for the collections may range from $15 to $50. (Author/PF)
