Guide to Resource Organizations for Minority Language Groups. Resources in Bilingual Education.
Reilly, Marta Torres, Comp.; And Others
This guide is a collection of profiles of 242 organizations which serve as resources for the bilingual education community. The organizations span a wide variety of purposes and language groups, and run the gamut from major national associations to locally significant, community-based groups. This compilation includes entries which appeared in the "Guide to Professional Organizations," published in 1979 by the National Clearinghouse for Bilingual Education (NCBE). Each entry listed includes the name of the organization, the address, phone number, director, contact person, and any of the following information that was available: sponsoring agencies, date of origin, purpose, membership information, parent organization, special divisions or committees, geographical service areas, funding sources, publications, conferences, former name, target languages, and target cultural groups. In addition, keywords from the "Thesaurus of ERIC Descriptors," eighth edition (1980) are also included. The entries appear in numerical order by NCBE accession number; the organizations are indexed alphabetically at the beginning of the volume. (Author/AMH)
