Abstract

Federal legislation which culminates years of court action and civil rights activities now requires that handicapped individuals be given an opportunity for professional education. This paper discusses the impact of such legislation on library education in terms of needed modification in curriculum content, media formats, and access to programs and services. Specific questions are asked in each area. Educational opportunity results in occupational opportunity requiring basic job redefinition in a new American Library Association statement on employment opportunities for the handicapped in libraries. Emphasis is placed on the need to modify stereotyped attitudes of faculty, students, and professional peers concerning handicapped persons.
