Standards for Library Services to Disabled Students.
Trezza, Alphonse F.
The paper addresses the quality and extent of services provided by academic libraries to students with disabilities. The issue of establishing standards for such services is considered, and while the author notes the formidable difficulties involved in establishing such standards, he asserts that standards must be developed and implemented. He cautions that the services provided to physically impaired students must be at least as good as those offered to other students and that staff must be more concerned with the actual service provided than with procedures and processes involved. Further, he suggests that library staff must be aware of the responsibility of serving disabled students and must communicate that responsibility to the administration. (CL)
