Kurlychek, Ken, Comp.
This catalog lists the holdings of the Software To Go software lending library and clearinghouse for programs and agencies serving students or clients who are deaf or hard of hearing. An introduction describes the clearinghouse and its collection of software, much of it commercial and copyrighted material, for Apple, Macintosh, and IBM (MS-DOS) computers. It explains how to join the service, the lending procedure, and the requirement that an evaluation sheet be completed for each borrowed item. The second section provides guidelines for completing the required software evaluation form. A listing by subject and grade level precedes the software descriptions for each of the three formats. Subjects include art, business, computers, database managers, desktop publishing, driver education, early learning, educational games, English/language arts, foreign languages, health, library skills, logic/problem solving, mathematics, music, reading, science, sign language, spreadsheets, telecommunications, utilities, and word processors. The software packages are listed alphabetically by software title, and each listing includes: recommendations of schools and programs with ratings, sample comments, and opinions of evaluators; vendor; replacement cost; grade levels the title is designed for; review citations; equipment requirements; subject area; brief description (provided by the publisher); and contents of the package. Addresses and phone numbers of vendors complete the catalog. (DB)
