Description
"Public Library Services for People who are Homeless or Under-housed in North America" is a resource guide that was created for LIS 592: Intellectual Freedom and Social Responsibility, taught by Dr. Toni Samek. This guide is a summary of major findings and themes from a term paper completed for this course. Research for this guide consisted of a thorough literature review of policies, position statements, and popular and academic articles concerning public library access for vulnerable populations, including people who are homeless or under-housed, in North America. Topics covered in the resource guide include facts on homelessness in Canada, policies and position statements from the CLA and ALA on library services for people who are homeless, common barriers to library access and areas for improvement, and resources and references for librarians.
