Library Trends 41 (1) Summer 1992: Libraries Serving an Underserved Population: Deaf and Hearing-Impaired Patrons

 

Library Trends 41 (1) Summer 1992: Libraries Serving an Underserved Population: Deaf and Hearing-Impaired Patrons. Edited by Melanie J. Norton and Gail L. Kovalik.

This issue of Library Trends discusses topics related to one group of disabled patrons: deaf individuals. Librarians have an exceptional opportunity to take a proactive, instead of a reactive, role in serving the special needs of people who are deaf and of those who work with deaf people. Deaf individuals, like hearing individuals, are not a homogeneous group. The editors hope this issue of Library Trends will help librarians make use of existing resources and perhaps learn new ways to adapt or augment existing services to the needs of people who are deaf or hearing impaired.


Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
