Libraries for the Blind in the Information Age - Guidelines for development

This document 'provides detailed guidelines on implementing library services specifically tailored for persons with disabilities. The guidelines address a wide variety of topics (e.g. legal framework, collection development, training, delivery methods, alternate format production, management and marketing, and QA). It includes comprehensive practice recommendations along with supporting references.'

'These guidelines were developed with input from many people from all over the world, including those who use libraries for the blind, work in them, or have a professional interest in the success of these libraries. The Standing Committee of the IFLA Libraries for the Blind Section wishes to acknowledge and thank all those who contributed.'
