Author: Robin Osborne; American Library Association. Office for Literacy and Outreach Services.
Publisher: Chicago : American Library Association, 2004.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The many assumptions about current library outreach services - that they're off-site, depend on special funding, and are administered by specific staff - no longer reflect the realities of providing equitable library services to the audiences who most need them. This guide answers both "why" and "how."
