Eyster, George W.
Volume 1 presents a summary of the methodology, problems, and recommendations of seven projects demonstrating the coordination of public library with public schools services for disadvantaged adults. The summary covers personnel (clients, orientation of undereducated adults to library services, readers' profiles, library cards, and advisory boards); recruitment and promotion; library materials (assessment of collections, selection, acquisition, delivery, reader guidance, housing, resource centers, bookmarks, and fines); delivery (bookmobiles, mail, circulating collections, Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes and home instructors, and class visitations); in-house services (ABE classes in libraries, displays, and miniprograms), information and referral; policies (general, fines, funds, outreach services, and in-house service services); coordination (school libraries, newsletters and other publications, advisory committees, joint workshops, tours, organizational structure, funding, and obstructions to coordination); and spin-off (community awareness and planning, coordinated efforts, coping skills; materials, higher education, and continuation). Volume 1 concludes with a checklist of activities needed for coordinating and delivering usable library services to adult students. (Author/LS)
