Childers, Thomas; Post, Joyce A.
A search of various literature was conducted to learn what is known about the information universe of disadvantaged adults. More than 700 documents were discovered bearing on information needs, use, and information-seeking behavior of the aged, blacks, native Americans, Chicanos, migrants, the poor, and other disadvantaged. An overview of the documents and a profile of the information-poor is provided. The bibliography lists more than 700 relevant documents. (SK)
