Deaf Information Resources Workshop for Librarians

                         Friday September 19th, 2003

                            8:45 am-12:30 pm

TOPIC:  This workshop will present information resources that are used
to research topics related to deafness. Because much of the research
material related to deafness is tied to the history of people who are
deaf and the institutions that have supported them, the workshop will be
presented from a historical perspective, beginning with a brief history
of Gallaudet University and schools for the deaf. How to find
information for research topics related to deafness such as psychology,
education, biography, history, sociology and linguistics will occupy
center stage. Specific resources, both print and electronic, will be
recommended, as well as the best way to use them.

FORMAT: Registration begins at 8:45am.  A half-day workshop from 9 am to
12:30 pm. There will be a 15 minute break.  The workshop will conclude
with an optional brief tour of the Gallaudet University Library and the
Archives beginning at 12:30.
