The Indiana Deafblind Services Project maintains a loan
library called the Resource Materials Center. This library has over 600 books,
videotapes and other items specific to children who have deafblindness
and/or other multiple disabilities. Materials are available for checkout
to Indiana residents only and cover a range of topic categories
including: Assessment, Communication, Curriculum, Early Childhood,
Employment, Family, Inclusion, Medical, Skills, Technology, and
If you are interested in searching our library for information related to deafblindness, you can use the keyword, subject, author and title search options below. You also may browse all items in the library or print any of the listings. Once you have found an item that you wish to check out, check the appropriate box(es) and click on the "request checkout" button. This will provide you with a screen showing the item(s) that your are requesting and a form for you to fill in your name and address. Once the form is completed simply hit "Checkout" and an e-mail with your request will be sent to the project office.
The typical loan period is four weeks. If the item you would like to request is listed as "not available", you may contact Sharon Bryan by email at Sharon.Bryan@indstate.edu and indicate your interest. Your name will be placed on a waiting list for the materials.
A small collection of books, video tapes, and documents have been
compiled in a
library for use as a resource by our training teams and persons
completing the Blumberg Center's programs: Indiana IEP
Resource Center, Effective Evaluation Resource Center, Creative Problem Solving
(CPS), CPS for General Education Intervention (CPS for GEI),
Facilitated Individualized Education Programs (FIEP), and Targeted
Student Intervention (TSI).
While all of the books in the following list are available through the professional library, many may be available at your local library. Because a limited number of copies of the books and materials are available for loan through the Blumberg Center Library, a two-week check out period has been established, allowing one additional week for a send/return period. A borrower may check out a maximum of two books at any one time.
The books were purchased through grants from the Indiana Department of Education, Center for Exceptional Learners. If materials are lost or damaged, the borrower assumes responsibility for the full replacement cost of the book. To borrow the books, you may contact: Marlene Lu at 812-237-2842 or Email: Marlene.Lu@indstate.edu.
