The Homeless in the Public Library: Implications for Access to Libraries.
Simmons, Randall C.
RQ, v25 n1 p110-20 Fall 1985
Discussion of the homeless in American public libraries focuses on harmless individuals who may be considered nuisance by library staff/patrons. Highlights include literature about problem library patrons, national problem, social issues, major themes (offense to others and library staff, balancing rights, and elitism), and implications for access. Sixty-four references are cited. (EJS)
