Eyster, George W.
Disadvantaged adults who need the information a library can provide include those who are poor, in the minority, aging, institutionalized, or handicapped. Methods used to recruit these potential patrons may include the media, mailings, exhibits, posters and billboards, personal contact, classes, bookmobiles, speakers, and advisory committees. Some help in recruiting disadvantaged adults might come from government agencies, service organizations, educational agencies, professional groups, and health and penal institutions. A list of suggested readings is included. (LS)
