Library Accessibility.
Wilson, Betty Ruth
The paper addresses issues in libraries' architectural accessibility for disabled students. A history of awareness regarding accessibility is recounted and the increased acknowledgement of need for services for disabled persons is underlined. The author points out steps that may be undertaken to provide accessibility in ways other than major structural efforts, such as understanding subtle barriers and altering them. The installation of accessible telephones is cited as one example. (CL)
