The document opens with a 13-page paper entitled "The Role of Libraries in Post-Literacy Adult Education," by E. E. Kaungamno, which discusses the goals, policies, and problems of providing library services for the new literates of mainland Tanzania. The role of libraries is to provide follow-up reading material so that neo-literates do not relapse into illiteracy. The provision of follow-up literature in sufficient numbers, and a nation-wide distribution of it, free of charge, cannot be possible unless there is a well-organized public library system. Also included in the document are: a list of periodicals currently received by the Documentation Centre of the International Institute for Adult Literacy Methods; recent acquisitions in the areas of adult education, documentation, education, educational technology, foreign workers, literacy, and rural development; and catalog card indexes by subject, author, title, meeting and corporate body. Abstracts of seven documents and catalog cards for documents pertaining to literacy and literacy programs make up more than one-half of the document. (NH)
