NLS: That All May Read

Reference Publications

Added Entries
Added entries is a quarterly that lists significant new publications added to the reference collection of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
Bibliographies
A series of bibliographies is issued on topics of interest to students, professionals, and others doing research on some aspect of handicapping conditions.
Circulars
Each issue in this series is a compilation of current information on a topic of interest to persons with singular handicaps and those who provide services to them. Circulars are revised frequently to reflect the most recent information on a topic.
Directories
Directories provide information on libraries in the U.S. that provide reading materials to blind and physically handicapped readers, periodicals available in special media, and volunteers who will transcribe braille, narrate books, or enlarge print materials.
Factsheets
A series of factsheets is used to provide annual data about NLS, a publications checklist, information about specific policies and services, and, as appropriate, other information having current reference value.
Subject Headings
A list of subject headings developed by the Reference Section of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped for its own specialized collection of reference materials on blindness and physical disabilities. The headings are not those used in the online catalogs of the Library of Congress, although some are modifications of those headings.

Many of the publications listed above are available in braille, audio cassette, large print, or as a link on the Internet.
