Organizing a Nursing Home Library for Residents. A Do-It-Yourself Manual.
Curtis, Ruth V.
These guidelines for developing and maintaining a library in a resident nursing home, for use by either staff members or volunteers, recommend an individual survey of each resident as a way of determining reading preferences and deciding what materials should be ordered. Other areas examined are the location of the library, including space and furniture needs; acquisition of books, magazines, newspapers, audiovisual materials, and library supplies; organization of materials, including formats for book cards and pockets, and for shelf list, author, title, and subject catalog cards; circulation procedures; and publicity for library events. Pertinent information resources in the Central New York area are listed. (FM)
