This document is an annotated bibliography of audio-visual aids in the field of consumer education, intended especially for use among low-income, elderly, and handicapped consumers. It was developed to aid consumer education program planners in finding audio-visual resources to enhance their presentations. Materials listed include 293 resources with both audio and visual components, e.g., films, sound filmstrips, slide-tape shows, and video cassette programs. The bibliography is organized using the Consumer Education Resource Network's subject heading categories, and also includes an index, a section on items that were field tested, a program suggestion section, and names and addresses of producers of audio-visual resources. Subjects covered by the audio-visual materials listed include the consumer decision-making process (advertising, decision making); consumer resource management (budgeting, retirement planning, taxes, investments, insurance, buying skills, credit, and consumer goods and services); consumer interests (fraud, rights, and responsibilities); energy; and foods and nutrition.
