Library of Congress, Washington, DC. National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
This reference circular lists United States sources of braille books and magazines available for loan, purchase, rental, or free distribution. Each source entry contains the name, address, telephone and fax number, Internet address (if available), and a brief description of the source. The first two sections list general and religious sources of braille books and magazines, the third section lists sources for jumbo braille and print-braille, the fourth section lists major braille presses and transcription services, and the last section provides resources for further information. This circular was compiled from catalogs and other literature submitted by agencies and organizations in response to a survey conducted by the Reference Section. Many of the responses indicated that materials are available on cassette and in large print as well as braille, but this publication is limited to braille sources. (Author/SWC)
