Handicapped Libraries
  • Why be a Librarian in the 21st Century?
  • Libraries have always been a part of my life. The
    libraries that my children are growing up with
    now have much more than just toys and books. The
    reason I would like to be a librarian in the 21st
    century is so I can experience life with a
    versatile and ever changing public in my
    immediate library community. I think the
    population that the libraries can serve is very
    diverse, but my specific areas of interest are in
    making sure our young have the ability to read
    and for those individuals who are visually
    impaired have available their specific
    requirements met. I hope by being a librarian in
    the 21st century I can play my part to help make
    sure a love of reading is gained by the young and
    retained by the elderly or handicapped.
  • I want to be a librarian for the love of
    learning, life, self, and possibilities.
  • On main page use the pict of girl and dog reading
    the book.

Self
  • My name is Emily Pereira. My family includes my
    husband Frank, my son Brandon and my daughter
    Mona.
  • I currenty work full-time at Rutgers, The State
    University in an administrative position as
    Program Coordinator for the Johnson Johnson
    School Health Leadership Program .
  • I am a part-time online student at SCILS for the
    MLIS program. I think in the librarian field I
    may have more chances of advancement within the
    university.
  • Parents always want their kids to grow up to be
    smarter and have less hurdles in life then
    themselves. I want the ability to make that
    happen for my children.

Learning
  • Learning keeps life moving in positive
    directions.
  • Librarians gain a wealth of knowledge from
    working with the public on various information
    searches. They must be aware of varieties of
    search techniques, have favorite reliable search
    databases, and most searched websites.
  • Here are a couple examples...
  • Libraries Working with the Older Community here
    libraries have to take into account their
    physical needs such as poor vision, poor hearing,
    loss of memory, and maybe even the inability to
    move. Libraries can introduce to this group
    large print readings, audio books on CD, basic
    computer skills classes, electronic books, web
    searching.
  • University of Huston's Student Library Here
    they believe learning does not end when classes
    are over. Learning can happen any time and any
    where. They offer many options to their students
    such as computer labs and tutoring sessions.
  • Libraries that Attract Children to Learning
    Here children are introduced to typing programs,
    listening to books on computer, educational
    computer games, and such.

Illiteracy
  • For the next generations to take full advantage
    of their libraries and learning , they must be
    able to read. All the books, newspapers,
    magazines, microfilm, ebooks, audio books,
    cd-roms, internet searches and websites will not
    have the same effect for someone who does not
    have the skills to even understand the titles.
    Librarians serve as a support to the education
    systems efforts to make sure no kid falls
    through the cracks.
  • Literacy Statistics According to the literacy
    report http//nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfo.asp?
    pubid2006483 released by the National Center
    for Education Statistics (NCES)
  • About one in 20 adults in the U.S. is not
    literate in English
  • 11 million Americans lack the skills to handle
    many everyday tasks
  • 30 million adults may not be able to make sense
    of a simple pamphlet
  • 85 percent of all juveniles who interface with
    the juvenile court system are functionally
    illiterate.
  • More than 60 percent of all prison inmates are
    functionally illiterate.
  • Literacy is learned. Illiteracy is passed along
    by parents who cannot read or write.
  • One child in four grows up not knowing how to
    read.
  • 3 out of 4 food stamp recipients perform in the
    lowest 2 literacy levels
  • Low literary costs 73 million per year in terms
    of direct health care costs. A recent study by
    Pfizer put the cost much higher.

Life
  • By lifestyle, I mean the opportunities in life
    that librarians have.
  • I can be a librarian for a research
    company/records department for a public school
    or even in a University setting. I can be the
    person who directly can help the public or I can
    work completely independently in an archive
    somewhere.
  • If I work at a University level, I might be out
    on the field delivering and picking up materials
    between other library branches on campus.
    University library positions would be the optimal
    setting for keeping up to date on the latest
    techniques and information retrieval methods.
  • Have another animation SWF with the words coming
    together in the middle and becoming the pict of
    the happy librarian.

Blind Handicapped
  • Worldwide, 42 million people are blind this is a
    huge population group that needs to have their
    needs met by libraries as well.
  • ALMOST ALL BLINDNESS in the United States is the
    result of common eye diseases. (Less than 4 is
    the result of injuries.)
  • 100 million Americans are visually disabled
    without corrective lenses (70 million are
    myopic).80 million people suffer from
    potentially blinding eye disease.11,400,000
    people have severe visual conditions not
    correctible by glasses.6,400,000 new cases of
    eye disease occur each year.2,800,000 people
    are visually handicapped from color
    blindness.1,100,000 people are legally
    blind.650,000 people are hospitalized each year
    for eye injury or disease. 5,500,000 people
    have vision obstructed by cataract.
  • 120,000 people are presently blind from
    glaucoma.5,500 people become blind each year

Possibilities
  • Possibilities including, but not limited to
  • Job Opportunities
  • Public Relations
  • Lifelong Learning
  • Membership Camaraderie
  • Lifelong Learning Possibilities
  • While being on hand to help others in their
    information retrieval process will naturally keep
    the librarian abreast of current patron needs.
    Also, while working at a library you will have
    access to databases and new computer programs.

13
Networking
  • Job Opportunities
  • Librarians have their choice of working as
    school librarians, law librarians, museum
    librarians, future professors in Library Science,
    etc.
  • Public Relations Possibilities
  • Public relations can make your library stand out
    and be more appealing to the users. Events can
    include book sales, children's room reading
    contests, free continuous education computer
    classes, and free wifi available on library
    grounds. Public relations are a great method for
    interacting with your library community clients
    and being able to ask them about their
    experiences using your library. Be ready to take
    notes on suggestions, likes and dislikes.
