Information in Social Gerontology.
Dosa, Marta L.; Ardito-Kirkland, Stephanie
The objective of this essay and bibliography is to assist information and library professionals, as well as individuals from other disciplines, to gain some insights into the major themes and issues of social gerontology. The focus is on the role of information and data in gerontological research, public policy, service delivery, and information and library services, with emphasis on individual rather than societal aging. The bibliography is divided into two parts. Part one discusses background issues in social gerontology, including concepts and development, research, public policy, human services and advocacy, and education and training. Part two examines the role of information in social gerontology with emphasis on information for older persons, information for those who work with the elderly, and international issues. This is not primarily an Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) bibliography, although almost half of the citations are either ERIC documents announced in Resources in Education (RIE) or journal articles reviewed in Current Index to Journals in Education (CIJE). A list of bibliographic sources is included. (Author/CWM)
