Information and Funding Sources Concerning Adult Illiteracy: A Resource Guide.
Rogers, Margaret
Intended to help users of the Laubach Literacy Center find information about adult illiteracy, this guide contains information sources describing existing literacy programs (both basic illiteracy and functional illiteracy); publications about adult illiteracy from the state, national, and international perspectives; and sources and conditions of funding for proposed literacy programs and research. Following a presentation of definitions, acronyms, and abbreviations, the guide is essentially divided into five major subsections: (1) background information on adult illiteracy; (2) an introduction to government documents (including a brief legislative history of a sample bill, how to obtain government documents, a sample entry from the "Monthly Catalog," and sources for more information on government documents); (3) an explanation of how sources are cited in the guide; (4) sources of further information on adult illiteracy (including terms to look under, library browsing, information on adult literacy programs, a sampling of the research literature on adult illiteracy, relevant periodicals, offices to contact for more information, and legislators to contact); and (5) sources of funding (where to look for information on grants and places to apply for grants).
