Library service for the visually and physically handicapped : a report to the California State Library by Raynard Coe Swank( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Objectives of this study were: (1) to review existing library service to the blind and physically handicapped who are unable to use conventional printed materials, concentrating on braille and talking books for non-institutionalized persons, and (2) to suggest approaches to long-term planning for improved services in California, authorized by Title ivb of the Library Services and Construction Act (lsca). It is concluded that the full range and quality of these library services cannot be accomplished at the statewide level by the two existing regional libraries with special materials for the blind, and the need for personal assistance to readers calls for some degree of service at the community level. A statewide network for library service to the blind and visually handicapped is recommended, consisting of a system of regional centers where major collections of frequently used materials in special media would be maintained for use by local library outlets. In addition, the State Library would handle more of the specialized requests and have overall responsibility for the statewide system. Suggestions for first steps toward the long-term development of the network include the strengthening of the Books for the Blind and Physically Handicapped program of the California State Library and the promotion of pilot programs at the regional and community levels.
