How Do Adult New Readers Locate High-Interest, East-To-Read Books?
Scates, Denni Kay
Public Libraries, v38 n5 p294-98 Sep-Oct 1999
Investigates how the needs of adult new readers are being met in five North Texas public library systems using the PLA's (Public Library Association) list of recommended titles for "Adult New Readers" for 1993-97 as the comparative sample. All the libraries had titles from the sample, though there was considerable variance. Only one library has an in-house literacy effort; some librarians were unfamiliar with the adult new reader collection. (AEF)
