Title: A study of deposit collections of the Florida Division of Blind Services Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped

Abstract: The 535 deposit collections (small collections of blind and physically handicapped (BPH) equipment and materials, e.g. talking-book cassette players and cassettes lent to facilities, e.g. nursing homes) in the direct service area of the Florida Division of Blind Services Library F/T Blind and Physically Handicapped in Daytona Beach were surveyed via a mail questionnaire during November 1989-February 1990 to determine: what deposit collections were being utilized by type of facility, e.g. nursing home and to what extent; what reactions deposit collection site personnel had towards: the Florida Regional Library (FRL), the operation of the deposit collections, and staff use of BPH equipment and materials with BPH users; what site personnel knew about the full range of services available from the FRL; what site personnel knew about in-house distribution and utilization of BPH equipment and materials with programming, e.g., poetry groups; and what type assistance was provided to BPH users, e.g. reader's advisory services.

A data analysis based on 274 total usable respondents produced: 28 conclusions; 7 national recommendations; 8 Florida Regional Library Recommendations; 7 deposit collection recommendations; and 3 study recommendations which included that given the non-availability of policies, procedures, guidelines, standards and/or operational manuals for deposit collection organization and operation and given a continued disregard for this condition, it was recommended that the FRL consider the discontinuance of deposit collection services. The study included: 24 Figures and 4 Tables; and the study instrument questionnaire in the Appendices.
