Bibliographic Instruction for Disabled Students.
Broadway, Marsha D.
The paper reviews approaches for making bibliographic instruction accessible to college students with visual, hearing, and mobility impairments. Needs assessment should focus on students, library staff, administrative officers, faculty members, and educational specialists. Consideration in program development should be given not only to special programs but also to modifying existing programs. Suggestions for library orientation approaches are offered for blind, hearing impaired, and physically disabled students. Examples of successful bibliographic instruction employing video formats and emphasis on term paper counseling are cited. The importance of evaluating the programs and using results to improve instruction is stressed. (CL)
