International Directory of Libraries and Production Facilities for the Blind.
Cylke, Frank Kurt, Ed.; Hanke, Peter, Ed.
World-wide in scope, this directory lists organizations producing braille or Talking Books, maintaining braille libraries, and exchanging resources with organizations serving blind or handicapped people. The directory is arranged in seven geographical sections: Africa, Asia, Australia (including Oceania), Europe (including U.S.S.R.), Middle East (northern Africa and the eastern Mediterranean countries), North America, and South America (including Central America and the Caribbean). Countries are arranged alphabetically within these seven sections and individual organizations alphabetically within their countries. Information about each organization includes five parts: braille production, braille distribution, Talking Books production, Talking Books distribution, and general information. Seven indexes provide access by language (28 languages are represented) and by organizational function. (CL)
