The Coordination of Library and Basic Education Services for Disadvantaged Adults and Expanding Public Library Services to Disadvantaged Adults. Final Report.
Euster, George W.
This report for fiscal year 1974-75 covers the second year activities of three demonstrations in Georgia, Ohio, and Tennessee, of the interrelating of public library and basic education services for disadvantaged adults. It also covers the dissemination of these demonstrations through the training-institutes series in those three states and in Kentucky and Mississippi. The body of this report is divided into several parts: (1) a brief chronology of the experiences of the Appalachian Adult Education Center (AAEC) which resulted in the library series of the past three years; (2) a theoretical overview and literature review on the nature of information seeking/finding as it pertains to public library services to disadvantaged adults; (3) an overview of the demonstration projects and the 31 communities participating in the dissemination-institute series; and (4) the results of the one-year followup evaluation of the 32 1973-74 dissemination institute sites. Appendixes include work statements, end-of-the-year reports, products, and compilations of the participants' evaluations of the two-day planning sessions by site. (Author/SL)
