Library Services to Older Adults

My second 1 credit course this semester is Library Services to Older Adults.  I decided to take this course due to my interest in genealogy, which is mainly populated by older adults.  It is being taught by Allan Kleiman, who is well known within this topic.

Our first assignment is looking at census records of an area to determine the older population there.  We will eventually be analyzing the services provided by a library in the same area to the older adults.

Curious about serving older adults in libraries?  Check out ALA's guidelines on the subject.
