Compendium of Information Sources on Youth.
National Collaboration for Youth, Washington, DC.
This compendium of more than 80 clearinghouses, libraries, research centers, youth development organizations, and publishers is intended as a resource for professionals, volunteers, funders, grant writers, researchers, educators, and others who work with or on behalf of young people with and without disabilities. It provides a preliminary list of resource centers and services that have been identified by the youth development field as providing useful information. Each of the sources of information listed either publishes, distributes, or electronically links a customer to information on youth services, statistics and funding information, or databases of specialized youth-related material. Each entry within the compendium provides a summary of the purpose and activities of the information source, selected publications and resources, and a description of the contents of its Internet site, if one exists. Information sources are listed in alphabetical order in the table of contents, indexed by subject categories and the publications and electronic resources available, to assist the reader in identifying the correct information source.
