The sourcebook contains the following information: (1) an examination of the changes in the nature of the older adult population and the impact of these changes on their educational needs, (2) a "state of the art" report on current community college programs for elders, (3) an inclusive model of educational program development for elders, (4) sample core curriculums in five specially delineated program areas for elders, and (5) an appendix of additional case studies, pertinent resources and contacts, and an annotated bibliography. The document also contains program plans for the development of a conference for community college administrators for the purpose of disseminating information offered in the sourcebook. Such a conference was held in Boston in 1975, and is discussed. Sample letters, forms, and materials are appended. (Author/PC)
