In 2001, the Libraries Serving Disadvantaged Persons (LSDP) Section of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), published the "International Resource Book for Libraries Serving Disadvantaged Persons." This publication is a seventy year retrospective which chronicles the history of the Section from 1931 to 2001. The main purpose of the "Resource Book" was to raise awareness of the Section and its work in promoting library services for disadvantaged groups. This publication, entitled "International Resource Book for Libraries Serving Disadvantaged Persons: 2001-2008," has maintained the guiding principle of the original publication and serves as an update to the original publication. The authors have chosen 2008 as a closing date as it is a milestone in the history of the Section. In 2008, the Section changed its name to Library Services to People with Special Needs (LSPSN) Section which more accurately reflects the Sections ever broadening scope. In order to facilitate use of this update, the authors have chosen to maintain the same format as that of the "Resource Book". The update is divided into several sections: (1) An Eight Year Retrospective; (2) Section Papers Presented at IFLA Annual Conferences, 2001-2008; (3) Section Professional Reports; (4) Library Services to the Deaf: A Bibliography, 2001-2008; (5) Library Services to the Elderly: A Bibliography, 2001-2008; (6) Use and Development of Easy to Read Publications: A Bibliography, 2001-2008; (7) Hospital Patient Libraries: A Bibliography, 2001-2008; (8) Prison Libraries: A Bibliography, 2001-2008; (9) Author Index to Section Conference Papers and Professional Reports; and (10) Subject Index to Bibliographies.
