The materials included in this reference circular are recommended as basic resources for providing current information on general aspects of visual impairments and physical disabilities. The selections, based on the holdings of the Reference Section, National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), were chosen for their currency and authoritativeness. With the exception of a few classics in the field, most titles are in print and were published since 1990. Titles in the NLS collection in Braille or recorded format include the book number with the citation. Prices (subject to change) are shown for comparative purposes, and publishers' addresses are included for materials not readily available through a library or bookstore. Books, free and inexpensive materials, periodicals, and World Wide Web sites are listed. Entries are organized into the following subject areas: accessibility; aging; assistive technology; biography; blindness and visual impairments; Braille; children with disabilities; consumer information; deaf-blindness; deafness and hearing impairment; diabetes; disabilities and chronic illness; disabilities in media and literature; education; employment and rehabilitation; learning disabilities; libraries and library services; low vision; materials in special media; sports and recreation; talking-book program; travel and transportation; and women and disability.
