We need your help! We are writing guidelines for providing library services to people who are experiencing homelessness. An important step in this process is collecting examples of library services to people who are experiencing homelessness worldwide. Can you send us examples?
A session organized by The Library Services to People with Special Needs Section (LSN) and Public Libraries Section (PLS) explores library services to the homeless, people with mental difficulties and the incarcerated.
The guidelines are a revision and expansion of the previous guidelines published by IFLA in 2001. We expect them to be a valuable tool for library staff who are responsible for serving persons with reading and learning difficulties.
This Session will focus on access technologies that enable libraries to offer a higher quality of life to these who are afflicted with physical, mental or cognitive disabilities and, therefore, are unable to access current library services.
