HOW TO SEARCH FOR LIBRARY MATERIALS
In addition to the LITERACY SUFFOLK/SCLS literacy collection, many public libraries in Suffolk County have collections that support adult literacy. Searching the County Catalog can identify these materials. The address for the County Catalog is: http://alpha2.suffolk.lib.ny.us/
These are very general subject headings that group together materials housed in Adult New Reader Collections throughout the county. To find more specific topics, use the ‘Limit by’ feature of the County Catalog. Instructions for using this feature are in the Resource Guide provided to tutors during the training workshop.
