Staff members of the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (LBPH) have been participating in national activities that are influencing service to talking book patrons throughout the country. Carol Taylor, Library Director and Gordon Reddick, Assistant Director attended the National Conference of Librarians Serving the Blind and Physically Handicapped in Los Angeles, California, April 29 - May 4, 2000. They participated in programs and discussions related to the digital-audio movement, library equipment audits, adaptive technology and outreach activities. The National Library Service sponsors this biennial conference for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS).
Gordon previously was the librarian representative from the Northeast to the NLS National Audio Equipment Advisory Committee, which makes equipment-related recommendations on planning, design, production, distribution and repair. Carol has been appointed librarian representative from the Northeast to the National Advisory Group on Collection Building Activities through 2001. The committee is made up of network librarians and readers-at-large from the four regions and representatives from three consumer organizations. Members discuss the various concerns they have brought from the patrons they represent and make recommendations to guide NLS in the development of the collection.
