Summary

This booklet examines the role and outlines the activities of Australian libraries in meeting the educational, cultural, recreational, and information needs of the physically, sensorily, and mentally disabled. The origins of library services for the handicapped in Australia are discussed, existing services are reviewed, the library needs of disabled people are analyzed, and the types of materials and collections required to meet those needs are described. A proposed national program to provide library services to the disabled in Australia is reviewed and the pattern of library services best suited to Australian needs and conditions is outlined. Also included is a detailed consideration of physical access to library facilities for the handicapped in which physical and social barriers, planning and design, costs, and library equipment are discussed. The Library Association of Australia Statement of Policy on Library Services for Disabled People and a Checklist for Evaluating Library Services for Disabled People are attached. (Author/JL)
